The barefoot, freckled face boys visited the library this week. I love these boys! They kick their shoes off as soon as they come in and they always are covered with good smells!. Smells of dirt and woods and lunch. Love smells. And they love the library and books and Labrador retrievers!
Caleb always wants to walk us around the library and show us all of the beautiful books. But Eli just wants to read. Book after book after book. He doesn’t read much himself. He likes for the Mom Person to read to us, but he’s learning a little.
This trip he brought his little bunny to share with us. And picked out a book with a bunny. Max’s Bunny Business by Rosemary Wells.
I like that Max bunny. He’s kind of a crazy little guy. And he reminds me of the barefoot boys! In this book, his sister, Ruby, and her friend, Louise, set up a lemonade stand to make some money to buy some sparkly jewelry. Max wants to help, but the girls won’t let him. Poor Max.
But Max comes up with an idea all his own and “turns the table” on those girls! This is a funny, cute book. The pictures are big and bright. The words are pretty simple and easy to read. And the story offers a lot of points to think about. I like stories that make kids think! Eli liked it alot. We read it a couple of times. I think that his bunny liked it, too. And Caleb even sat and listened for the whole book!
I give Max’s Bunny Business 4 paws. You should check it out!
And Rosemary Wells has a great website that you should check out as well!
