PreSchool-Grade 1–Max Mouse and friends, introduced in One for All
, All for One
(Minedition, 2005), are playing together when they become aware of the presence of Rico. He has a reputation of never being nice, so they ignore him. When their ball flies his way, Rico grabs it and runs home. The animal friends follow him and knock on the door, but no one answers. The next day, Rico's mother makes him return the ball. The others want to take it and go, but Max has another idea. He rolls it back inside the burrow and invites Rico to join them. Sure enough, he shows up and they all have a wonderful day together. The textured watercolor illustrations of these slightly cartoonish but totally endearing creatures fill the spreads and add warmth and child appeal to the message on sharing and kindness.–DeAnn Okamura, San Mateo County Library, CA
