24 months - O has just started watching the occasional Max and Ruby cartoon so this was a hit. It's a cute story and I enjoy reading it too. ( )

This book is great to connect fantasy characters and predictable text. This is done by different events that have all the same outcome. This is helpful for beginner reader to have that confidence and enjoy a fictional book.

I found this book to be really cute and depict the relationship between a brother (Max) and sister (Ruby). The simplicity of the story's plot is what makes this book so great for new and young readers. It is easy for young children to follow along without getting lost in the story, while also keeping it lighthearted. The characters are both male and female so it is great for both genders to connect with. I also enjoyed the relationship Max and Ruby have. It is very clear by the bunny's sizes that Ruby is older than Max, but she is very patient with him and does not get mad or yell at him for breaking/dropping almost every ingredient. This shows the reader to control his or her emotions and how to properly deal with situations that upset them. The last thing I enjoyed about this book were the pictures. I found them to be very colorful and basically told the story themselves. This is great for a new/young reader to connect the story to and look at if confused or lost. ( )

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. ( )
