Buy! The story is great, the rhyming makes it fun to read, and the illustrations are fabulous. Even toddlers, who may not yet understand the message will love this book.
Our kindergartner liked following Ruby Lee's path on the page. S/He loved the rosy cheeks and Ruby Lee's smile ... often commenting about them as we read together.
