School Library Journal - Amy Commers, South St. Paul Public Library, MN

"Max and Zoe are good friends. When Max misses out on the class’s recess sledding excursion because he forgot his boots, Zoe helps him remember by writing notes and taping them up in his room. The next day, he wears his boots but forgets his shoes. In the second book, Zoe can’t dribble the ball through the cones at soccer practice but is the fastest runner on the team. She and Max decide to help one another and learn new skills. Short chapters and episodes of action help move the story arcs along, with Sullivan’s expressive illustrations providing good context clues. Well balanced, the books manage to include lessons like perseverance and responsibility without being overly didactic. Good additions for beginning-reader collections." - School Library Journal
