I have been reading Max and Ruby for some time now with my kids, even before it was a cartoon. Now my youngest, who is five, loves to watch Max and Ruby on TV. Another one my of son’s favorite books include the How Do Dinosaurs series, “How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food?” is included on The Red Hen DVD.
