Synopsis

Synopsis

For some families, part-time jobs for children are a way to impart all kinds of skills and experience. For others, it’s a matter of necessity if kids want spending money. Maxwell Newhouse, who is a plumber as well as an author and artist, understands this. The Weber Street Wonder Work Crew is a group of kids who have lots to offer their neighbors: from babysitting cranky toddlers to lending a hand in a garden, washing windows, and even helping an elderly lady who needs support to keep up with her friends online.

Lively folk-style paintings work with a simple text to inspire kids to take part in their own communities.

PRAISE FOR THE HOUSE THAT MAX BUILT:
“Warmly rendered folk-art-style oil paintings show the house coming together over time. Varied perspectives focus on the people as much as on the work they do, reinforcing the importance of teamwork and specialization.”
School Library Journal

“Children intrigued by construction will enjoy the level of detail, which includes a look at a variety as well as the exploits of Max’s troubleseeking terrier. Fresh and informative.”
