It’s Halloween and Max & Ruby are dressing up!
TV favorites (as seen on Nick Jr.), mischievous Max and his big sister Ruby, are getting ready for Halloween in Max & Ruby’s Trick or Treat, and we’re invited to join the fun. Help Max color and count his toys. Practice tracing theme words, such as candy, spider and pumpkin. Help Ruby match her costume apparel, and then complete her ensemble. Spot the differences as the bunnies’ beloved grandmother serves Halloween treats. Max is without his trick-or-treat bag! Guide him through the maze to retrieve it. This 16-page activity book is full of fun, including connect-the dots and pattern recognition activities. For added enjoyment, there are stickers and two press-out figures, one of Max and one of Ruby. Happy Halloween!
