Little Kid Reaction

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.

Parent Reaction

Ruby Lee herself makes this a fun book to share and share again. The illustrations are captivating, and the message is important.

Pros:

Kids quickly grasp the clich

Cons:

None, really. The author introduces the idea that who we are is part of "God's plan," so individuals who prefer completely secular stories may want to consider an alternate title.
