Disclosure. I was given a review copy. As always, the opinions expressed are those of my own. The post may have affiliate links.


All three of my kids are on a reading kick lately — and I love it! We were sent a review copy of “Be Responsible Like Max” by Todd and Jackie Courtney. They are the people behind the Inspirational Nursery Rhyme Series and believe that if we teach children values at a young age, combine it with fun, then our children will develop better behaviors. Read on to find out what we thought of it.


As the third book in the series, “Be Responsible  Like Max” was an easy read that talked about positive ways to be responsible. My 5 year-old and 6-year-old could relate most to the book, while my little 2-year-old listening to the rhymes.


  • Rhyme time. I don’t know about you but I think books that rhyme is much more fun to read. My six-year-old also had a great time reading it.
  • Life lessons. Dubbed as “self-help books for toddlers,” the authors Todd and Jackie Courtney wanted to create a positive belief system and positive self-image. In this particular book, Max is presented with a few responsible actions that he does every day like making his bed, picking up his toys, and cleaning up his room.
  • Hidden books. At the end there is a challenge to find the hidden books in each page. The kids loved looking back and finding them. Every. Single. Time.

We Wish:

  • The illustrations were “cuter.”


Bottom Line:

This is a keeper. What a great way to instill values at a young age. We will be checking out the rest of the books in the series.
