Max’s Valentine by Rosemary Wells
Rosemary Wells’ popular bunny characters Ruby and Max are featured in this Valentine’s Day board book. Max/s big sister, Ruby, is decorating Valentines with Yum-Yum Glitter and candy hearts. Max wants some of the candy but Ruby says she needs it all. When Ruby’s Valentines are done, the mailman takes them away. Poor Max.
Max wanted the candy to “Be mine,” but he doesn’t have much time to feel sad. The postman delivers Valentines from grandma, and Max is thrilled to find that she has sent him chocolate ants. The appealing artwork and the little brother / big sister story will appeal to two- to four-year-olds. Compare prices (Viking, A Division of Penguin Young Readers Group, 2003. ISBN: 9780670036684)
