About Marvelous Maxx
In the spirit of the popular children's picture book vocabulary building series, we’ve written the Marvelous Maxx books as a bridge for 4-8-year-olds. Marvelous Maxx offers a fresh twist: not only is it an adventure that builds vocabulary, but it teaches some basic medical facts and first aid, as well as helps allay the fear of doctors’ visits.
Come along with Maxx and his friends - Arielle & Lucas - as they face many adventures and challenges, and overcome them!
We hope you fall in love with Maxx and his friends.
