When "Max's Chocolate Chicken" was first published in 1989, "School Library Journal" cheered, "It's cause for celebration when rabbit toddler Max and his bossy sister Ruby return to share another holiday with young readers." Now Dial is proud to present this wonderful story in an updated board book format, featuring a bright new cover illustration and fresh design. Max and Ruby are going on an Easter egg hunt, and Ruby has declared that whoever finds the most eggs will win the chocolate chicken that someone put in the birdbath. "No eggs, no chicken, Max, " warns Ruby as her brother wanders off to investigate ants and acorns. But, as always, Max gets the last word— and the chocolate chicken!

This was not my favorite easter book. I have seen the show max and ruby so I figured I'd one of the books. Although, this would be a cute book to teach about brother/sister relationships and the importance of sharing. Read full review
