One of the most wonderful books ever. The illustrations alone will make your child love these cuddly, adorable monsters. Also deals with love and respect within the family as Max learns the responsibilities of being in charge.

Quiet Wyatt

By Bill Maynard

Quiet Wyatt

It seems “Quiet, Wyatt” is always the answer when Wyatt asks to do anything. His father says he’s not big enough to help make breakfast, the big kids say he’s too young to play with them, and Wyatt’s mom says he’s not old enough to buy the cute, fluffy puppy.

Rating: *****

This book is as much for parents as it is for children. It’s a nice reminder that children have a voice and should be allowed to use it.

The lion, the bear, and the elephant compete to see who can do the best job scaring a tiny old woman, but she has a surprise for them.

Rating: ****

This book is like a modern day fable. It teaches children respect.
