Max Goes Hunting
Enjoy this adventure story about being on one’s own for the very first time. In this lesson-filled read for new readers, the little ones get to follow Max as he goes hunting for the first time. Max’s adventure might encourage families to include more fruits and vegetables in their diet, as both nutritionists and medical professionals have suggested.
Max’s parents taught him how to hunt for his own food. However, when he goes out hunting for the first time, the emotional pleas of his captured prey become unbearable; he has realized that the carnivorous life may not be for him. Despite his parents’ expectations, Max is unable to return with an animal for the family meal. He gets hungrier and hungrier as he roams through the woods, not knowing where to look further for food.
What he doesn’t know is that a surprising discovery awaits him when he least expects. Find out what it is as Max Goes Hunting.
