This is a series of picture books and centers around two bunnies and it is very sweet. Not only is this a book this is also a tv series, so it would be fun to read a book then watch an episode, maybe even the episode based on the book we read.

Another one my little guy spotted in the library. He seems quite taken with this series of books, which is based on the children's television series 'Max and Ruby', about two rabbits. Ruby is the more responsible older sister, while Max is her younger brother (probably equates to preschoolers) who doesn't talk much. He does have a mind of his own, however, and usually finds creative ways around Ruby's sensible planning.

Max's sister Ruby decides to tidy up his room and throw away the rubbish, but Max doesn't want to give up all his treasures. His pocket comes in handy when Ruby isn't looking.

As with the other two books we've read (and reviewed), this book is easy to read to preschoolers, with a large illustration (primarily drawn but with some fabric / photos too) and a couple of sentences on each page. And it's fun and entertaining. And my little guy keeps coming back for more, so it must be working for it's target audience.

Summary: Max, a young bunny, doesn't want anyone to throw away his popsicle. So he hides it, but in the process he ends up dumping everything in his pocket, in the end he has to clean everything up.
Genre: Fantasy
Media: Colored Pencil
Age: Primary
Critique: This book teaches a good lesson about the importance of cleaning up and it also a good use of fantasy because all of the characters are animals. I would use it to emphasize the importance of staying organized.

This is a book about Max, a bunny, who doesn't want to clean his room. His sister, Ruby, tries to help him. He ends up putting everything into his pocket instead. In the end he needs to clean up his mess that he has made. This is a good book to clean up their messes and staying organized. ( )

I have always liked the Max and Ruby books. "Max Cleans Up," is a book about Ruby (Max's older sister) trying to teach Max how to stay organized by cleaning up his room. But when Ruby tells Max to throw things away he just puts them in his pocket because he doesn't want to get rid of them. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142301337, Paperback)

Max's room is a mess! There's a Popsicle melting in the closet, a tube of opened Miracle Bubbles on the floor, and the ant farm ants have escaped under the bed! It's definitely time to clean up. Max's sister, Ruby, is quick to take charge, and of course Max wants to help. But Max has his own ideas about picking up his room, so things don't turn out exactly as Ruby planned. Children will cheer as Max innocently and humorously outsmarts his older sister once again.
