Bunny Cakes

Author: Rosemary Wells

First line: It was Grandma's birthday. Max made her an earthworm birthday cake.

Why you should read it: Children's favorites, Max and Ruby, star in a story about communication and how difficult it is for the pre-verbal and pre-literate. Kids enjoy watching Max inadvertently destroy things and sypathize with his frustration.

Why you shouldn't read it: You question the wisdom of sending a mute, illiterate child to the market alone.
