"Another Rosemary Wells Winner!"
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.

I always liked reading the Max and Ruby series when I was a nanny, so I look for the books now when I need a toddler gift. I gave this one to our 1-year-old niece, along with Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Say Please Tea Set. She was entertained just flipping through the book, looking at the pictures, and I know she'll enjoy the story for years to come. She can use the tea set to have her own bunny tea party as she gets older, and the book will help her learn to share--and not to serve her guests insects!

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.

I bought this book for my daughter to go with her first tea set. I was annoyed the first time I read it to her. This is how the book goes: Ruby & Louise have a tea party, brother Max wants to be included. They say no, and make him be the waiter. He puts gummy spiders in their food.

Really? Do people even put thought in kid's books anymore?

My daughter loves to tell Max that he shouldn't put spiders on the cakes! Bright pictures, simple storyline. Perfect for a 2-yr-old Max and Ruby fan.

My almost 3-year-old granddaughter is intrigued by Max and Ruby. That's ALL she wanted for her upcoming birthday! This is a delightful little book, and giving her a little tea set with the book. Also bought the Max and Ruby 14" plush dolls from Amazon.com. A GREAT gift for my little one!! I want to be the HIT of the birthday presents!

My daughter's favorite character is Max and Ruby. I borrowed a book just like this one from the library and she never wanted to return it. So I bought this book for her and it's definitely a keeper. She is so proud because she can easily read it herself and she has memorized the book already. Absolutely love it.

My daughter loves this book especially since having a tea party is one if her favorite things to do. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because the one I received does not match the book pictured. The cover on the book is red not white and it isn't as cute as the book pictured.

Book was fun to read and was a nice addition to a tea set purchased at the same time.
