Mom has allowed Max and his friend Zoe to pick two items each at the grocery store. Max loves raisins and popcorn. Zoe selects chocolate bits and mixed nuts. Once they arrive home, they put their purchases together to create a delicious snack—trail mix. It is nice to see that Max has a variety of friends and that among them are girls his age; however, as with other books in the "Read-it! Readers" series that feature Max, the stylized illustrations leave this reviewer cold. FactHound is available to help kids find safe sites on the Internet for more information. This is a Red Level book—aimed at early readers. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
