Love, Ruby Valentine
After their tireless preparations for the upcoming Valentine's Day, little Ruby and her pet cockatoo accidently sleep in and almost miss the day entirely! As they rush to deliver their Valentines around town, they soon realize that they don't have to wait for Valentine's Day to tell people how much they care!
School Library Journal ended its review of this book by saying, "This story, told in rhyme,
should take a prominent place on Valentine's Day bookshelves." Agree!
Ruby Valentine Saves the Day
Ruby and her pet cockatoo are back and this time they're planning an elaborate Valentine's Day party. But, when the big day arrives, a snowstorm blows in and none of the guests can make it up the hill to attend the party. Can Ruby come up with a solution?
We love the moral of the story--that time spent together is more important than gifts and trinkets--and Cravath's illustrations are truly adorable!
