Great Books to Read

  • Max's Words

    by Kate Banks Year Published: 2006
    Max wants a collection just like his brothers have.  His brothers will not share their collections so Max decides to start a collection of his own.  He decides to make a collection of words.  His brothers make fun of him but he perseveres and creates a great collection of words that includes small words, big words, and words that make him feel good.  He collects so many words that he finally has enough to make a story.  His brothers become interested and want to help with Max's story.  This story is a great springboard for story writing.  Read it with your child and then create a story to share with the class!
