James patiently sat all the way through this one...a rare treat for dad. Got to read him a whole book! ( )

Bunny Cakes is a story about two bunny characters, Max and Ruby, who are making a cake for their grandmother. Ruby tries to make a cake but Max always messes something up in the kitchen. He spills the milk and knocks down the flour. Every time he makes a mess, he is sent to the grocery store by his sister. Max takes the opportunity to write down Red-Hot Marshmallow Squirters.

Rosemary Wells does a good job of giving both Max and Ruby each a distinct personality. Max is a mischievous and messy little boy. In the pictures though, Max seems to enjoy making a mess of the things he messes up. Ruby, on the other hand, is very assertive and controlling. She gets angry at Max for messing up the ingredients for the cake. I personally love Max. He is what nearly every little boy is. I understand Ruby's attitude toward her brother but it can be a little too much. The book is short and each page contains only a couple of words. The picture really describes the scenes that the author conveys. ( )

This book, however may not be a great example of literature for children, is great for teaching children about persistence and determination. Max wanted to get a certain food from the grocery store, but the man working at the grocery store did not understand what it was that he wanted. So trip after trip the man still did not understand what he wanted, but Max did not give up and still continued to try to and get what he wanted. This is a great lesson to teach to young children. They can learn at a young age to keep with their passions and to continue to do what they want. ( )

Another Max and Ruby picture book, this series is very adorable definitely good for read aloud books for first or second graders.

Max is more of a pest than helpful. Ruby does what any motherly sister would do. Just right for a younger audience. ( )
