I really enjoyed the book "Max" because of how different it is. "Max" takes away gender roles when the young boy participates in a ballet class and enjoyed it. It shows kids that you do not have to participate in typical "boy" or "girl" activities. It shows diversity in a different way and I really enjoy this perspective for student. I definitely recommend.

In this book max ends up liking the way his sisters dance class exercises before practice and he implements it before his baseball practice. teaching him that the way his sister practices doesn't mean he can't practice that way.

In this book, Max spends some time at his sister's dance class, after going back and forth about it, he decides to stretch with the class. He ends up enjoying it and decides that its a new way he is going to stretch for baseball. This book is great for teaching children to develop positive self concepts and also build up their self esteem.
