I am new to the Max and Ruby books, this is my very first. I can't wait to use this one for some of the "older little" kids I babysit for. I love that the book is interactive and incorporates rhyming. There is a lot going on on each page -so it might be a good one to break up into more than one sitting. The book begs to have a post book treasure hunt of your own! ...more

The clues are fill in the blank style using common nursery rhymes. Each is written under a flap in the book..

Here are more of the winning, formula illustrations of Rosemary Wells to enjoy. Plus, kids will like the flip-up-the-flap challenges through out the book. There is a nursery rhyme to complete for each of the challenges; a fun way to learn the classics like Mary Mac and I'm a Little Tea Pot. These new features feel gimmicky to me and there's no memorable narrative - but hey, the kids won't notice.

The recommended age is 3+. It's going to be dependent on the child. Kids now days could find this bo

My new FAVORITE Max and Ruby book of all time!!! When their picnic is rained out the bunnies head indoors and find Grandma has planned a treasure hunt for them. They follow the nursery rhyme clues around the house and discover Grandma’s special treat. Each clue is a flap readers can lift and the answer to the clue appears in a repeated border on the bottom of the page.

This book is great in so many ways! It includes rhyming words, and nursery rhymes and flaps for an interactive story and to top

What can I say? I adore Max. Grandma saves the day when she creates a treasure hunt to cheer up bunnies whose tea party has been postponed by rain. "Lift the flap" envelopes hide nursery rhyme clues. You have to provide the missing word to see help Max & Ruby find the treasure. A fun way to introduce and integrate nursery rhymes - just be prepared to create your own treasure hunt when you are done with the book! ...more

This is a book that can lead to an amazing class activity. If the teacher takes the time to do this, then they could set up a great treasure hunt in their own classroom that the students would have to work through.

Rhyming, nursery rhymes, print recognition, functions of print, first letters, lift-the-flap! This book has it all! Would be great for one-on-one sharing so that you could talk about each rhyme and activity and kids could get a closer look at the print clues.

I already loved these two adventerous characters, but the way this book was tactile and promoted learning about rhymes was super fun. With clues to guess and lots of opportunities for interaction this would make a great selection for storytime.

A cute treasure hunt for Max and Ruby fans. The large format and lift-the-flap nursery rhyme clues will make this a great read aloud.

Super cute. You could easily recreate the treasure hunt at home or school.
