Hi, I'm Maxine!

Follow me and my best friend Beanie on our next adventure! Today, we’re going to get ready, go to school, share with our friends, and maybe even make some new ones. Come with us to see what happens next.

Have you ever had a great day at school?

We have so much fun reading with our friends. Join Karolyn, the author of Maxine and Beanie, to see what happens when Beanie gets to go to school with Maxine! Grab your book and read along to learn about getting ready for special days, family routines, and diversity in the classroom.

Don’t forget to buckle up—we’re going to take a ride in the car!
