Max counts to a million is adorable. I loved how the author captured the mindset of an eight year old and explored the pandemic from his point of view. It was easy to read and something that I feel could appeal to all ages, not just children.
I also liked the idea that it provoked about people being able to do something quite huge and make a big difference to others, no matter their age.
I think Max felt believable and likeable. The way the relationship between him and his parents was shown, explained and discussed honestly. You could see the reasons both were acting the way they were, but understanding it from a child’s perspective and seeing that point of view is something that perhaps more adults need to think about doing more often.
I honestly really liked it and would definitely recommend it to others.
The front cover was appealing to children in particular.
