Why we love it: Since almost all kids have a natural affinity to animals, introducing them to books that star lovable dogs is a pretty safe bet. Maxi is an especially funny and endearing character your kids will fall in love with. Your children will see the world through this former stray dog's perspective and will be engaged with Maxi and his rescuer Jim's story from start to finish.
Jim takes Maxi along for the ride in his New York City taxi cab and that’s when we see the world through his eyes and get to go on adventures with him as if we are in the cab with them. Your kids will love the day to day New York City adventures as much as the heartwarming relationship between Jim and Maxi.
And we absolutely love the colorful illustrations and so will your children. It's a wonderful book that emphasizes the very special bond between people and their dogs. This picture book will definitely leave a lasting impression.
The rhyming text also makes this a perfect book to read aloud - so take turns with your kids. This is one you'll probably be asked to read over and over and over…….
