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. ( )

This is a library book that I read and re-read and re-re-read .... for my youngest. It's from the 'Max and Ruby' television series (for younger viewers) about two rabbits, and I think we've seen this particular episode a couple of times. Whatever the reason, he loved the book.

It's Granny's birthday, and responsible Ruby and silent Max have very different ideas about what kind of cake to make for her. How will Max (who doesn't talk or write yet) get the ingredients he wants to buy for his cake?

This book ties in directly to the same episode (as I remember it). Each page has a large illustration, presumably taken from the television show, with a couple of lines of the story underneath. Beginning readers can read Ruby's shopping lists. It's a nice story, and I think it helps that kids can identify with it, if they have seen the series on television. I'm giving it four stars, as it is fun and entertaining.
