I gave this book 5 stars because it is relevant to sisters with little brothers who are always playing with their toys or making messes. Max and Ruby are really great for kids because they are always getting into funny situations and making finally resolving them. This book is good for beginning writers because Max has to communicate by drawing pictures because he is not able to communicate by writing letters. It could also be used to talk about the ingredients in a cake.

It was Grandma's birthday and both Max and Ruby wanted to make a special cake for their grandma. Max wanted to make an earthworm cake but Ruby said she wanted to make an angel surprise cake instead. Ruby sent Max to the store with the grocery list, but Max wanted to add something else. However, he couldn't write so the first few attempts failed. On the last attempt, he drew a picture instead and the man at the grocery store finally figured it out. So, Max was able to make his own cake for his grandma instead since Ruby didn't let him help with hers.

"Bunny Cakes" by Rosemary Wells is a cute story about siblings Max and Ruby who want to make a cake for their grandma's birthday. Max makes an earthworm cake. Ruby, however, wants to make an angel surprise cake with raspberry-fluff icing and recruits Max to help. Clumsy Max keeps spilling ingredients so his sister sends him to the store multiple times with a list to pick up things. Each time Max goes to the store he tries to add "red-hot marshmallow squirters" to the list in his best handwriting but the grocer can never read what he wrote. With each accident Max makes, Ruby further excludes him from making the cake until she won't even allow him in the kitchen. Finally, Max draws a picture of "red-hot marshmallow squirters" and the grocer understands him. With both Max's and Ruby's cakes complete, they give them to their grandma who loves them both.This story has wonderful pictures and a clever storyline that shows that two different people can work together. It also shows the payoff of persistance.

Max makes an earthworm cake for Grandma's birthday and helps Ruby with her angel surprise cake. At the store, the grocer can't read all of the shopping list, until Max solves the problem by drawing pictures.

Cute story using our favorite little bunny Max. Great way to introduce beginning writing skills. Pictures are adorable, and emergent writers easily relate to Max,

Bunny Cakes it a great read for kids. My daughter (three years old) loves it! She loves the show and I was looking for the books by the original author vs. the others that are out now. Now she teases and wants me to buy marshmellows when we go to the store!

My children absolutely love this book. My 2 year old has to have it in the car with her! My son especially likes the earthworm cake & the red-hot marshmallow squirters.

My daughter loved this book when she was younger and still loves it now that she's 6 and can read it for herself. It maintains the appeal because the difference between Ruby's writing and Max's is even more obvious once the child can read.
