But"wait, Max,"his sister Ruby says,"First we go on an egg hunt.
How we love Max--the mischievous toddler rabbit who is usually battling wits and wills with his bossy-boots older sister Ruby. If you find the most eggs then you get the chocolate chicken."I love you,"Max innocently declares towards the edible chicken he covets."Wait Max,"warns Ruby. Now it's time for the siblings' Easter egg hunt! Just as the festivities are about to begin, a secretive Easter Bunny places a massive chocolate chicken inside the birdbath. When it becomes obvious that Ruby has collected the most (if not all) of the Easter eggs, Max takes drastic measures--as the youngest sibling often will--and steals the chicken."But Max, who is nonetheless young enough to be distracted by mud puddles and marching ants, can't possibly focus on finding a single egg."First we ought to go on an egg hunt. (Baby to preschool) --Gail Hudson Rosemary Wells's expressive, giggle-funny illustrations (together with the board-book format) make this a perfect Easter story for toddlers also as preschoolers, who will delight in Max's blatant misbehavior and relish the inevitable happy ending.
