Goodnight Max

 

Book Description


“Goodnight, Max,” says Max’s sister Ruby. But Max can’t get comfortable. First he spills a glass of water. Then there are all those itchy cookie crumbs in his bed…and the moon shining through his window. Will poor Max ever fall asleep? Rosemary Wells’ beloved Max and Ruby are back in an irresistibly touchable book that is also a satisfying bedtime story. Toddlers won’t be able to resist all the tactile elements–fourteen tempting things to touch, move, even smell–while a gently humorous story makes this the perfect book for bedtime, naptime, or anytime!

Bunny Party

 

Amazon.com Editorial Review


There’s something fishy going on at Grandma Bunny’s birthday party. Ruby is positive she’s only invited seven stuffed-toy guests, but every time she counts, there seems to be one more. “That’s funny, Max,” Ruby says to her younger brother. “All the guests are in their seats. But there are only 2 chairs left for Grandma, you, and me.” And off she goes to find another chair. Meanwhile, Max has his own ideas about who should be invited to the party. Can his Jellyball Shooter Spider, Can’t-Sit-Up-Slug, and Ear-Splitter Space Cadet mingle nicely with Ruby’s Rapunzel, Tooth Fairy, Mrs. Quack, and the rest?

Read To Your Bunny

Reader Reviewer

This book should be on every expectant parents list!

It is beautifully illustrated and written in simple language, yet it carries a powerful message. Reading is a wonderful way of sharing a part of our busy lives with our children, and it only “costs twenty minutes and a library card”. Rosemary Wells also includes a two-page message to parents at the end of the book that tells us how and why we should should reserve a special time and place for reading activities with our children.

The message in this book will stay with you long after you finish it…It can serve as a daily reminder and as a daily source of encouragement as we lure our children into the magical world of reading.

A truly wonderful book…

Bunny Money

 

A Kid’s Review


In the book Bunny Money by Rosemary Wells, bunnies Max and Ruby are trying to buy their grandmother a present for her birthday. Max and Ruby spend a lot of money. Will they be able to get what they want? Find out in Bunny Money. I really like Bunny Money because the book shows how much money the bunnies have.

Max’s Toys

 

Reader Review

 

My 13-month-old son has loved the pictures in this book since he was a tiny infant. He still loves the book. The story is very sweet, and it quite stands alone – unlike some other counting books, which have no “plot” aside from the numbers. I also appreciate that the boy-rabbit Max is shown to want a doll and that his sister (ultimately) thinks Max’s trucks, soldiers, etc. are desirable toys.

 

I love to give this book as a new-baby gift. It is a delight!
