A little girl at story time pulled this out for her mom to read to her, and Natalie listened in. When they were done, the mom gave Natalie this book. I liked how it goes over the numbers 1-9 with them embedded in the text. I also liked how it included the word all at the end. One of my favorite things about the Max and Ruby books are the toys that are always present, both in the books and the TV show. This book showcases in particular the mechanical lobster.
My kids love this book. They love to count all of Max's things with me, and look for all the different toys we counted on the last page.
I just didn't get the logic of this book. Max loves Ruby's doll and of course she doesn't want to share it. But when she suddenly tells him she'll trade the doll for all of his toys I think the resolution is way too abrupt for a little person to cognate.
My six year old refused to read this, but I think at age 4 he would have loved it. I certainly did. A short 1-2-3 book with a perfect, if peaceful, conflict between siblings about a toy.

One of our son's bedtime favorite. Read almost nightly multiple times, he asks for it by name and quotes his favorite parts. Good for encouraging counting.
Claire LOVES this book. It is a must-read every night.
