The World of Ruby Red Shoes:
A Book About Ruby’s Day
by Kate Knapp
The jolliest time of my whole day
is when I hear it’s time to play!
I like doing puzzles and climbing trees,
and skipping or riding outside in the breeze.
But my favourite game is to make a camp
under the table with a torch for a lamp.
As Ruby shares the fun and busyness of her life, this book looks at key times in a day, and in a subtle way highlights the importance of routine and also balance in our lives, including time for meditation and reflection.
What people are saying about Ruby...
Using rhyme to good advantage, the reader is taken from the time Ruby wakes up, gets dressed, has breakfast and goes off to school. Then it is time for her to play, have lunch and a rest, get some exercise and share the day with a special person. At home she spends some time in the garden, meditates and after dinner and a bath it is time to go to bed. Readers will love the soft illustrations of Ruby and her friends, all of which will resonate with the young, as they follow Ruby’s familiar routine ... This would make a lovely read aloud for younger children and those who are just learning to read might like to have a go at some of the rhymes in the book. A feel good book A Book About Ruby’s Day is sure to be a keeper for those who are lucky enough to own it.
