Ivy has lived in London her whole life (and I have been here for almost 18 years) but we still love to take a tourist day and explore the city as if it’s all brand new. This Maisy book from Lucy Cousins is perfect for tiny tourists who are planning a trip to the city and it’s guaranteed to get them excited about all the sights they will see.
Maisy and her friends visit London for the day and they tour all of the major attractions including Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Nelson’s Column and Big Ben. The book provides small facts about each so that little ones know what to expect and it also addresses things which they may find difficult about the city at first – including the noise, the bright lights and the fact the underground can get pretty crowded.
Throughout the book you see Maisy taking photographs and her little collection of snaps are displayed at the end so your toddler can test their memory and see if they remember the names of all the sights.
This is a fantastic introduction to the city. The text is simple but engaging and the brightly coloured representations of familiar sights mean that Ivy wants to read this again and again.
