Max Counts His Chickens

by Rosemary  Wells

Published by Viking, 2007
24 pages
ISBN: 0670062227

Ages 2-5

The Easter Bunny hides ten hot-pink marshmallow chicks all over Max and Ruby’s house. “Finder’s keepers,” Ruby cries as they begin their search. Goal-driven Ruby is pure focus and drive and quickly spots the hidden-in-plain sight peepers. Max is more thorough but less successful, searching out intricate hiding spots Ruby might never think of, emptying a tube of toothpaste, a can of coffee, and a carton of orange juice among other things, but he’s left with just a marshmallow-chickless mess in the end. Lucky for Max that Grandma has the Easter Bunny’s phone number, and all is well in the end of Rosemary Wells’ winning counting book.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
