Rosemary Wells has written another winner with Ruby's Tea for Two. The story follows her usual pattern: older sister Ruby tries to dictate how an activity should take place, in this case a tea party. Best friend Louise (who owns the tea set) is invited. Little brother Max is not. "One chocolate and one strawberry, please," Ruby orders newly appointed waiter Max. As usual, one-track mind Max is determined to get his way. The devious expression in Max's eyes is reason enough to get this latest addition to this lively series. The Max and Ruby books are such a hit in our house that my 3.5-year-old daughter renamed her younger sister "Max"- and she answers to it! While we saw this particular story first on TV's Nick Jr., both my girls request the book version over and over. I also recommend the recently released Max Drives Away.
Another reviewer expressed concern that the book teaches exclusion and revenge. However, I believe Max's experience can teach empathy, as it shows the consequences of exclusion. And of course, the best lessons come through dialogue between parent and child... This humorous story offers a fun opportunity to talk about sharing.
Really? Do people even put thought in kid's books anymore?
