This is a great book, with an inspiring and educational lesson: work hard and prepare and you will succeed. In contrast to books like "Frederick," this book teaches kids what it really takes to succeed in life, and does it with a charming story and great illustrations. And, with all due respect to the reviewer from Durango, unless you live in the Rockies, the mountain is tall enough. We live in New York City, and it seemed like an accomplishment to me.

All of the other reviews are right on but the true test of time is what makes a good children's book, a classic for your family. This is one of those books that your children will want to read to their children. Hang on to this one...a great message with beautiful illustrations.

Another counselor introduced me to this book and it is another great example of using growth mindset to overcome a challenge. Maxwell finds a BIG awesome, glorious mountain in his neighborhood park and is set on getting to the top of it. What I love about the story is Maxwell does everything it takes to accomplish his goal. He practices, prepares, and uses positive self-talk to keep going. When it comes time to climb the mountain - he uses all of these skills to overcome the setbacks he encounters. These are the exact things we are trying to teach our kids. Love.

Our family loves this book, especially my six-year-old. Maxwell wants to climb a mountain, like a real mountaineer. By himself. But first he must prepare himself for the adventure of his lifetime. He checks books out of the library. He goes on training missions (up and down the stairs.) But can he actually do it? What if he gets lost? This book is charming, funny, engaging, and totally delightful. It's one your kids will clamor to read again and again and again.

read this one on the Reading Rainbow iPad app, and the kids love it. Great little story with a big-kid message. Appropriate for my 4-year-old and 7-year-old.

I wish this book had been around when my kids were younger! The illustrations are an excellent extension of the book's voice. A story for any child (or parent of a child) with a sense of adventure. A great lesson in how to think for yourself!

Maxwell's Mountain is a fabulous story of a little boy who is so intrigued by the mountain near his park, that he sets his sights on climbing, by himself, all the way to the top. His determination eventually wins over his parents, who reluctantly support the thoughtful and very hard work Maxwell does in preparation for his great adventure. This is a book chock full of lessons worthy of aspiring to for any young child. Maxwell follows his heart, with hard work and commitment overcomes the objections of his parents, and, when his climb does not go exactly as planned, he uses great problem solving skills to realize his dream. This is a great story by Shari Becker, complimented by Nicole E. Wong's beautiful watercolor illustrations. I highly recommend this book.

I am a Kindergarten teacher who was thrilled to read Maxwell's Mountain to my class. This year (5 years old) is all about gaining a sense of sense, individuality, confidence, risk-taking, and independent problem-solving. Maxwell's Mountain fit right into our All About Me social studies curriculum. My students loved it. Some reactions were: "It's important because it teaches you how to climb a mountain!" "You can do it if you really try hard," "It tells you to listen to your heart," "It reminds me of Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel." The children really like the illustrations - especially the two page verticle spread. I'm sure we'll be reading it again soon.
