Thrills! Danger! Arts and crafts! Max & Mo! In these four Level I Ready-To-Read books, the hamster duo of Max and Mo slip early and often out of their cage to explore the elementary school art room in which they live. Drawing, cutting, and gluing ensue. The results are simple and fun crafts projects that readers (with a little help) can make themselves.
MAX AND MO'S FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL
School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 1—Two class hamsters go back to school after summer break and discover that the new kids do not know their names. Embarrassed by being called Tummy and Fluffy, Max and Mo sneak out of their cage at night to make their own name tags. The next day, the little creatures are called by their right names. With plenty of simple sentences and easy vocabulary, this book will delight beginning readers. The pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are filled with activity as the hamsters set about their task, and the book concludes with directions for making a rolled-up name tag like Max's and Mo's. —Erika Quall.
