Ruby Valentine Saves the Day by Laurie Friedman and Lynne Avril
It's almost Valentine's Day - Ruby Valentine's favourite day of the year! It's a perfect day for a party, and everyone in Heartland is invited. But on the day of the party, there's so much snow that no one can come! Will the party be ruined? Or can Ruby find a way to make it work out after all?
This was my first dip into the world of Ruby Valentine, a young girl who apparently lives alone with her bird friend, Lovebird. She has a kind, generous spirit and talks in rhyme. My favourite part of this book were the illustrations, so colourful and expressive. This will be a popular pick around February, but the sentiments of going with the flow and making the best of things are worth reading all year round.
