To celebrate 40 years of Max and Ruby, we are publishing MAX'S FIRST WORD in a new lap-sized board book format!

Older sister Ruby tries to teach Max some simple words. "Say 'apple, ' Max," says Ruby. "Say 'egg.' " But Max has his own ideas about what his first big word will be.

When first published in 1979, Rosemary Wells's Max's First Word set a new standard in board books. Using very few words and hilarious pictures, Wells tells an entire story in only twelve pages, with content that is perfect for the youngest reader. Showcased in a new lap-sized board book format, this classic title will delight a new generation.
