Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Max and Mo are two little hamsters who live in a cage in a school room. They have plenty of food to eat because the children feed them lots of corn. But Max and Mo are getting tired of eating corn, so they make signs that read “New Food.” But no one pays any attention to them. Then, Mo reads a sign that says, “We went apple picking. Get ready for applesauce.” Max and Mo are happy that they will get some new food. They climb out of their cage and go to find the applesauce. They hide under a table and watch the cooking and cutting of the apples. When some apple bits fall to the floor, Max runs out, with near-tragic consequences. Later, when the room is empty, Max and Mo feast on the leftovers. When cutting an apple in half, they drop one half into some paint. They lift it out and onto a piece of white paper, making an apple print. Soon they are making lots of prints in different colors. So, they make another sign that reads: “Apple Picking is Fun!” This is a fun and easy book for beginning readers. Includes directions for making apple prints and applesauce. The illustrations are colorful and delightful. Reviewer: Della A. Yannuzzi
