Trust Rosemary Wells to make an ABC book a real story! Aug. 8 2006
By Suzanne Amara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's always a challenge to make ABC books into a story---it can often seem so forced to include all the letters. Not here! The tale of Max's escaped ant farm ants includes every letter seamlessly, and at the same time is a delight to read! We get to revisit some favorite Max and Ruby themes---Max taking a bath, Max spilling things, Ruby being bossy and Max outsmarting her wordlessly---lots of fun! The ABC theme is not forced---you can read this without even mentioning to your child it's an ABC book, as I did with my almost 2 year old. Each page has a few words highlighted that start with the letter featured, and once my daughter is older, I will point that out to her, but for now, we just enjoyed seeing what Max and the ants were up to! Ants are a great choice as a theme, as my daughter like many toddlers is fascinated with them, and watches them outside every chance she gets.

Another winner from Wells!

A new favorite July 11 2006
By Elizabeth D. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a grandmother of 4 children under the age of 5, Max's ABC was a must-have. When they were young, I read the Max & Ruby books to my children, and they were always favorites.

I read this new book to my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter almost every day. It is her new favorite book.

My only criticisms of the book are that some sentences are awkward, and the typo on the M page - a missing "to." In a child's book with few words, one would think a typo like that would not get by.

All in all, another great book from Rosemary Wells.

A great book Feb. 6 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the most entertaining, imaginative alphabet book I have ever read...for adults as well as for children. My two year old grandson loves it. So do his parents because they can read it forever and not be bored!

Finally a fun ABC storybook Sept. 21 2006
By MeaganJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book has a fun story to go along with the ABCs. My three year-old begs to read it and loves the idea of ants in your pants. It's a really fun book for both toddlers and parents who get bored of standard "A is for Apple, B is for Boy, etc." books.

My 2 year old twins love this book Jan. 9 2007
By torio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a great, fun book to read with your small children. They love the phrases like 'bite bite bite went the ants on Max's birthday cake' and 'down down down went the cranberry juice' (I am writing this from memory so it could be slightly off, but you can get the idea). This has become one of their most viewed books very quickly! My just 2 daughter has memorized a lot of the phrases and 'reads' it out loud to herself.
