Take Turns, Max and Millie by Felicity Brooks and Desideria Guicciardini

This is a delightful new title for the very young, with a simple story teaching good habits and good manners. This charming story follows two young friends, Max and Millie, as they learn about the simple concept of taking turns, so children can learn from their example. Simple, repetitive text makes this title easy and enjoyable to read to very young children.

This is a board book by Usborne. The book is brightly coloured with a cheerful cover I am sure will stand out on a book shelf anywhere.

The book tells the story of Max and Millie, friends, who both want to play with the red car at nursery. They learn how to play together and take turns.

The pages are all bright and cheerful with lovely pictures. The characters are really cute and accompany the story well. The story is printed in clear text with some words being stressed on the page to accompany the pictures.

There are three books in the series - Brush your teeth Max and Millie; Take Turns, Max and Millie; and Time for Bed, Max and Millie. I am sure they will become great accompaniments in nurseries, schools and homes everywhere as Max and Millie teach children the importance of going to bed, brushing your teeth and taking turns.

Thank you to Amy at Usborne for sending me the book to review.
