Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Once again, big sister Ruby tries to maneuver Max through a familiar routine, and once again Max has his own ideas about the process. In this "touch and feel" board book, Ruby tries to get Max to go to sleep. After four pajama changes and the opportunity to touch a towel, crumbs, cherry-flavored nightcrawlers, a lace curtain, a fly swatter, and a teddy's tummy (among other items, fourteen in all), Max finally settles down for the night. Max's many detours on the way to bed will remind readers of Bedtime for Frances, but Wells' simple text and the chance to touch lots of items make this board book much more toddler-friendly. As usual, Ruby has much more to say than Max; and as usual, Max has the last word--"Goodnight!" 2000, Viking/Penguin Putnam, Ages 2 to 4, $9.99. Reviewer: Eileen Hanning—Children's Literature
