Best books for children

I am so very pleased with these books...They are beautiful and sweet and the messages they convey are very much needed today, responsibility, thoughtfulness, politeness and more. The fact that they are expressed in rhyme makes teaching even very young ones so easy. Thank you Max Rhymes!

It's a hit!

The Max Rhymes Books are a major hit at the house. I have Alessandra running around telling me she cleaned her room like Max, brushed her teeth like Max, picked up her toys like Max. It's funny!

~Grep P.

We want more

This was such a hit that they kept wanting to read more and following what the book was saying to be responsible or learn skills. These book are so valuable for young children learning life and how to live it because it teaches values that will never go out of style.
