I used this book in 1st grade to introduce how words are used to create exciting sentences. So many mini lessons can come from this book - how to sort words, how to add adjectives to simple sentences, etc. Gave students "Word Journals" afterward to start collecting their own words. Great success! LOVE this book! Thanks Kate Banks!

I bought this book for my 2nd grade class to start a word study. The kids loved the story and the illustrations. They also loved cutting apart magazines to find words that they could join together to create interesting phrases to improve their own stories. The kids were able to manipulate words easier after they had cut them out... just like Max, the main character in the story. As a parent, it was a whimsical tale that my own elementary-aged children enjoyed.

Great story for for children who are learning how to read and write. It is especially good for teaching children how to make sentences. My son had a little difficulty with reading and some of the things the little boy did in the book, he did with his reading tutor. Great for children who are struggling with reading and writing. I am a teacher and I throughly enjoyed reading it to my son.
