" easy reader about the hamsters in the classroom who love to make art--this time with apples. " said.

" An early reader book, so the story and words are very simple. Two hamsters are tired of the corn they receive to eat and want new food. It's their lucky day for applesauce is on the menu.Really fun little illustrations and some instructions at the end for an art project with apples and making applesauce. " said.

" Max and Mo are a pair of school hamsters who remind us of certain library rodents we know you all love. Max and Mo share a habitat in the school's art room and watch the children participate in class. In each book they sneak out of their cage to have some fun of their own using a few basic art supplies. Each book has directions for an art project at the end. The only way this series could be made better would be if Max and Mo were gerbils instead of hamsters.Read this review on our webpage. " said.

Max & Mo Go Apple Picking is a Level 1 “Ready-To-Read” book. This is part of a series featuring the same characters.

Max and Mo are hamsters in a classroom. They are tired of eating corn, and when they see a sign about apple picking, they are very excited. They sneak out of their cage, and get a chance to do some “apple picking” and applesauce tasting of their own. They even make apple prints!

This book is intended for beginning readers. Hallmarks of Level 1 include: “Word repetition, familiar words and phrases, and simple sentences.”

“They watched. Apples got cut. Apples got cooked. And apple bits dropped.”

The book also includes instructions for making apple prints, and a recipe for making applesauce. The recipe is easy for children to follow with easy-to-follow steps like “WASH” and “CUT”. Of course, this is all supposed to be done with adult supervision.

The illustrations are cute. Max and Mo are very funny, and my daughter liked seeing them working together and scrambling around the classroom. They managed to get into quite a bit of mischief!

I would recommend Max & Mo Go Apple Picking. This would be a wonderful book to read at any point in the year, but it would be especially relevant in the fall when many families go apple picking. Max & Mo is a fun series of easy reader books, and this seems like such a fun way to practice those emerging reading skills!

" Read at Storytime 9/20/17Theme: Apples!A good beginning reader that has cute hamsters that go on a quest for an apple meal. Tips for applesauce and crafts are included for a fun apple day! " said.

"Strange little book. I can see how it would appeal to early readers, and the book does lend itself very nicely to playing with apples (applesauce and apple printing are shown both in the book and in instructional form at the end), but these little hamsters are a touch too...sentient for my taste. And nobody seems to think it's odd that the hamsters make signs telling the kids what they want! I know, I know. It's all part of the fun. But if just didn't sit well with me. Nothing even remotely controversial here, though, and I would use it again for an apple unit. I just...didn't like it. Oh, well. It happens." said.

" This is a cute story about two class pets who want to have a little variety in their diet and join in on the applesauce-making fun. The narrative is short, perfect for beginning readers and the illustrations are adorable. We enjoyed reading this book together and even though these books are a bit too easy for our girls, they really like the cute critters. We will certainly look for more Max & Mo books at our local library. " said.
