A Basket Full of Bunnies – Make it a Max and Ruby Easter
Looking for the perfect presents for the Easter Bunny to bring your young child this year? Look no further than the tales of Max and Ruby. These lovable bunnies are the perfect addition to any child’s collection and are sure to bring more than just fun and entertainment to your child’s life. Centering on the relationship between two siblings, the Max and Ruby toys, books, and television show provide opportunities for learning and growth with every experience.
All About Max and Ruby
The stories found in the books and on the Nick Jr. television show feature Max, his sister Ruby, and their friends and family. Max, who is three years old, is trying to learn to do things for himself. He is very determined and offers children of a similar age an excellent role model for overcoming challenges. Ruby, who is seven, is supportive of Max and tries to help him learn something new in each story. The children are fortunate to have a wonderful, funny grandmother who lives in the house next door. She offers guidance and support through all the children’s antics and models a positive relationship between young children and older family members.
Each Max and Ruby story offers up a key message that is meaningful to children in this age group. Some stories feature Max and Ruby playing together or interacting in positive, supportive ways. Other stories focus on modeling respectful behavior by showing the bunnies being respectful to each other, to their grandmother, to their toys and their friends. Often, the message of the story will be brought about through some conflict or issue that Max, Ruby and the other characters need to resolve. As the bunnies overcome each challenge, learn each lesson and resolve each conflict, your child will benefit from the positive messages the stories provide.
Bringing the Books Home
Read one of the books together and then use the message in the story to spark discussion and interactions with your own children on the same or similar topics. Use Max and Ruby plush dolls to act out stories from the books with your children to help make the message of the book stick. If you are having trouble with sibling arguments or rivalry, use a Max and Ruby game or book to bring up the topic and offer your children role models on working and playing together.
There are also Max and Ruby books that take on specific issues in a fun and interesting way. In Max Cleans Up, Ruby tries to help Max learn to clean his own room. But Max doesn’t
want to throw his things away, even the clump of dirt from his floor. Instead, he stuffs them all in his pocket and learns his lesson later in the story. In Goodnight Max, Ruby helps Max through a series of mishaps, trying to get him to bed.
Bunny Filled Basket
Whether your children already love Max and Ruby or if you are bringing these loveable bunnies into your child’s life for the first time, Easter and bunnies are a perfect fit. From a Max and Ruby backpack full of books to a basket full of games and toys you can use to re-create their many adventures, you are sure to find Max and Ruby merchandise that will bring a bounce to your child’s step this Easter.
