Max's Breakfastby Rosemary Wells
Ruby tries every trick she knows to get Max to eat his egg, finally demonstrating how yummy it is herself! All gone! chortles Max. Rosemary WellsÆs original four Max books, brought out in 1979, were the first high-quality board books published. Combined with the second four, published in 1985, total sales are over one million!

Max doesn¿t like eggs, yet his big sister Ruby attempts to feed him one. Max want strawberries for breakfast, but Ruby insists he eat the egg first. Max tests his older sisters resolve by trying to get out of eating that egg: he cover it with a napkin, hides it on a chair, and finally climbs down from his chair, and hides under the table to avoid eating his breakfast. Ruby finds him, and demonstrates how good eggs are by taking a bite, ¿See, Max, said Ruby. It¿s a YUMMY, YUMMY EGG.¿ One bite turns into two, and eventually Ruby eats the entire egg. Max tosses a strawberry into the air, and with a big grin on his face declares, ¿ALL GONE¿. Ruby is exasperated. This cute story comes as a board book, and measures 7¿ x 7¿ x ¼¿. The text is very short; only ten pages long. Simply illustrated, yet the images are very expressive for easy comprehension. ¿MAX¿s Breakfast,¿ is a funny tale about a picky eater, but as in many of Ms. Wells books, it is awkward to read aloud, ¿Eat your egg, Max, said Max¿s sister, Ruby.¿ I have gotten to the point of discarding the last half of the sentences when reading her books, since they seems to flow better that way. Birth and up.
