This is Max. Max is very sleepy. It's way past Max's bedtime. Max has drunk his milk. Max has brushed his teeth. Max has cleaned behind his ears. Now Max just needs to say goodnight... Max is tired and all ready for bed, but when he can't find the moon to say goodnight to, he sets out to find it. But that's not as easy as Max had hoped... Witty and heart-warming, this stylish and beautifully illustrated book is the perfect bedtime read.
Sweet, sweet book! I adored this book! Max is so cute as he climbs higher and higher intent on wishing the moon goodnight! I loved it. And then when the moon tells him he could hear him from home, Max's reaction was just precious. This is a wonderful bedtime story. It's calm, positive and has enough little laughs to make it fun to read. I also love the illustrations. They are soft - perfect for a bedtime story - simple but yet help convey Max's emotions clearly. I love his big eyes. They remind me of my animals!
Media Thoughts: I would for sure add this to my "everybody books" collection. I can see kids liking it a lot especially when Max finally finds the moon (I personally loved when he climbs the dog!). I plan on using it with my kindergartners and having them have Max climb something to find the moon.
