In keeping with our event this week at The Storybook Shoppe, I wanted to share another Rosemary Wells favorite of ours in The O'Regan household. Bunny Cakes by Rosemary Wells features the popular rabbit characters, Max & Ruby, in a hilarious baking adventure. Max is up to his usual mischief and Ruby is up to her usual older sister role! This time they are in the kitchen together.
As the duo sets out to make Grandma a cake for her birthday, they find they have very different ideas of how to bake the cake. They also need ingredients! Max is convinced and determined he needs marshmallow squirters to make the perfect cake for Grandma. Ruby, the bossy but patient older sister, sends Max to the store over and over again with a list of sensible ingredients to get from the grocer. Strong willed Max finds a way to communicate (even through his illegible "handwriting") that he needs his favorite candy! Will Grandma's cake be filled with marshmallow squirters? Will there be two cakes?
Of course, Grandma loves that her grand rabbits have put the time and effort into making the perfect cake. We just love this funny adventure and the spirit of these characters!
If you love this series and book like we do, we found this really cool activity packet that teaches colors, shapes, and more using these adorable characters! Click here to learn more!
