* *   Reviewed by Bob Walch

This wonderful book features 52 pull-out placemats that will keep a youngster busy until dinner is served. Each placement comes with instructions on what the child should do. Help Maisy create a flashy tablecloth, color in toppings for toast or draw some apples on a tree so Maisy can harvest them.

All you need to do is supply crayons or colored pencils and your toddler will do the rest. This book can be used at anytime, not just before a meal is served. If you donít want to use the finished art as a placemat, then put it up on the fridge or someplace where the whole family can enjoy it.

This is the type of book you might also want to hide away for a rainy day or take along on vacation if you anticipate long waits at the airport or too much time in the car.

Note: The book has a good, strong, thick, back cover so that the child can work on the pictures while sitting in a chair. Good thinking!
