Reviews - What do customers think about Mad Maddie Maxwell (I Can Read!)?
Good book, if you're LOOKING for a religious first reader Aug 14, 2008
Like another reviewer, I didn't realize that this was a religious book. There's no indication on the cover, unless you know that the "Zonderkidz" at the top has religious affiliation. The title listed here at this site says "Biblical Values" but in a bookstore this book was lumped in with all the other first readers, and "Biblical Values" is NOT on the book's cover.
I think the ending could have been handled differently, because it was a great book up until then. After Maddie wrongly accuses her siblings of stealing her jump rope, her older sister helps Maddie find that it was in her room all along -- and then the story just abruptly ends with the older sister telling Maddie to pray to God for forgiveness? They couldn't have addressed better ways to communicate, asking for help, keeping your room clean so you don't lose your toys in the first place, how to apologize when you've been wrong?
So long story short, if you're WANTING a book that ends with a dictate to "pray to God to forgiveness" then this is a great one. If not, you might want to skip over this one.
My kids favorite book Jun 15, 2008
This is one of our families favorite books, this one is toned down for young readers to be able to read it. The original has lots of clever rhymes, I found that as the kids were reading it they wanted to put in the words from the original book.
Surprise! "Pray to the Lord" Dec 28, 2006
Why isn't anyone mentioning that this is a religious book? Not that I mind, really, it was just a surprise after reading these reviews.
Mother of 2 girls Mar 24, 2001
This is a beautifully written and eye-catching book that deals with a very real issue of being a "hot head" and saying you're sorry. Both my girls (aged 18 months and 5 years) love this book and want me to read it over and over! I often substitute their names for "Maddie" when they are acting like her! Perfect for teaching little ones to think before they act and to consider other's feelings.

This book is scary. I thought it was for my daughter, but when I read it, I discovered it had lessons for me. What a terrific story and teaching tool.
Any parent would benefit from having this wonderful book in their children's library. The art work is adorable and intriguing, but the story is compelling and stimulating. I hope other parents find this book as encouraging and comforting as I did.
This is a great model for other teaching stories that can help parents teach important attitudes and behaviors to our children. Thank you Stacie.
