Max's Valentine - Valentine's Day Board Book by Rosemary Wells

Viking, A Division of Penguin Young Readers Group

Introduction

These Valentine’s Day board books are perfect for very young children. Each of the Valentine’s Day board books has a brief, entertaining story, illustrated with colorful artwork. These board books about Valentine’s Day are just the right size for little hands to hold. Their thick cardboard pages are easy for very young children to turn by themselves.

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)
