Reading Guide

In The News

“*Stead's flora-filled settings and free-spirited style will feel happily familiar to readers of A Home for Bird (2012); the fresh storyline follows the range of reactions to an extroverted personality. . . A final encounter helps the heroine and readers comprehend and value the concepts of name and identity--and the blessings that reaching out to a diverse community bestows.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Ruby exemplifies the willingness to see the good in everyone, and Stead's artwork echoes her joyousness.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“This deceptively simple tale eloquently explores the universal theme of making friends. . . This irresistible read-aloud, with its recognizable and much-loved theme, will resonate with children.” —School Library Journal
