‘MAX MAKES A CAKE’
BY MICHELLE EDWARDS
A little boy makes a scrumptious surprise for his mother — and learns how rewarding it can be to create something on your own — in “Max Makes a Cake.”
Baby sisters can be so annoying! At least, that’s what Max thinks. Max is trying to bake a surprise Passover birthday cake for Mommy, but baby Trudy keeps getting in the way.
Max needs Daddy’s help — right now! — to bake his surprise, but Daddy is focusing all his time on trying to get Trudy to bed. As time slips away, Max must figure out how to make Mommy’s surprise by himself.
With her warm and succinct storytelling, Michelle Edwards captures the moment in a child’s life when he realizes he has the power to do things on his own.
This perfect-for-reading-aloud story also includes Max’s own super-simple recipe for his special Passover birthday cake (matzo layered with cream-cheese-and-jelly frosting!), as well as a very brief author’s note about the origins of Passover.
