Pip Squeak invited his friend Max over for tea, and now is rushing to clean his home for his guest. But Max isn’t the cleanest guest as Pip Squeak soon discovers.
This is a delightful book by Sarah Weeks. I often use her picture books for my storytimes, and this beginning reader did not disappoint. The short paragraphs and simple rhyme structure are great for new readers. The pace of the book is quick as Pip Squeak goes from room to room cleaning with a mop and a broom. Hah. Now I’m rhyming in my review.
The illustrations are colorful, and help illustrate the text to help children make the connections between the sentences and their visual meaning. The book also teaches kids the importance of manners, cleanliness and compromise between friends.
