Max & Ruby and Twin Trouble

Paula Wiseman Bks. (Max and Ruby Adventure). Oct. 2019. 32p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781534443655.
PreS-K–Max and Ruby’s Mama has a baby in her tummy that grows bigger and bigger, and soon it’s obvious that nothing will be the same. Max suspects that she simply loves cookies, but sister Ruby has helped with a new baby when Max was born and as usual, knows simply everything about everything, showing Max her Hannah the Howler doll to demonstrate her superior knowledge of infant care. Their family grows, as not one but two newborns are brought home to a surprised Max, Ruby, and Grandma. The twins keep all busy with feeding, changing, and bathing, for no one sleeps when the two are unhappy. Max creatively applies his own common sense solution, and his idea gives the family members a good rest as he finds a way to distract and entertain his new siblings.
VERDICT This suggested additional purchase holds appeal for young readers expecting new family members and those simply eager to enjoy Max’s latest adventure.
