maisy books by lucy cousins at chik-fil-a

May 23, 2009

If you are like me, you are always looking for a way to get books for cheap! Yesterday, we went to chik-fil-a for lunch and discovered that the prize in the kids meal was a mini maisy board book. I figure if you are going out to eat and plan on feeding your child lunch anyways, you might as well get a book along with the food. :) I love that chik-fil-a usually puts books in their kids meals rather than some cheap plastic toy. I mention this prize in particular because Juliet is a HUGE fan of Maisy and all her friends. Maisy was a bigger hit than the french fries. And there ain't too much that beats french fries.


You have to look at the menu board--where the kid's meals are listed to see what the prizes are that week. The maisy book was actually the toy for "children 3 and under" and you have to request it otherwise, you get some sort of DK book--which is also a good choice, but maisy is just irresistible to juliet. Had to get it even though, it really is meant for a much younger child. I figure she can read it to her dolls.
We only own two other Maisy books by Lucy Cousins: Maisy Goes Shopping and Maisy's Pool (both of which were found at goodwill.) but we have checked out several from the library.

Maisy's Bedtime was a big hit--we will probably check it out again. Juliet likes the part where Maisy sings a lullaby to panda. Sometimes I catch her singing to her stuffed animals, 'hush-a-bye, rock-a-bye, hush-a-bye bear." Very sweet.

Included with the board book was a little piece of paper inviting me to http://www.maisyfunclub.com/

I checked it out and was pleasantly surprised! If you're child loves maisy as much as juliet does, you will really like what this site has to offer: lots of fun free stuff and of course, books you can buy as well.
