Max’s Bear, Max’s Bath & Max’s Wagon by Barbro Lindgren & Eva Erikson.

bearMax’s Bear, Max’s Bath & Max’s Wagon by Barbro Lindgren & Eva Erikson.

Three first books for toddlers written in simple language  about their everyday play and made in sturdy boardbook format.

Max has a bear, a truck, a car and a ball along with his pet dog who has a personality of his own and is particularly fond of Max’s cookies. Name a dog that isn’t.

In Max’s Bear, Max plays with his bear to the envy of his dog. He chucks it around, cuddles it and it ends up in the potty. Oh the embarrassment! Dog reluctantly comes to the rescue.

The written text is simple 3 – 5 word sentences with all words being repeated for easy learning.

 

wagonIn Max’s Wagon Max loads up bear,ball, car and cookie into the wagon. Once the cookie is in dog takes a different view of things and of course ends up with the cookie.

Simple yet expressive water colour illustrations compliment the written text beautifully.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BathIn Max’s Bath Max bear, ball, truck and cookie go in the bath. Dog skitters away but Max won’t have it and dog goes in as well. The cookie somehow disappears.

Beautifully compiled by this award winning Swedish couple who have proved that children all around the world are on the same wavelength.
