Love, Ruby Lavender

Most Recently Read Book:

Love, Ruby Lavender

By Deborah Wiles

I picked up this book because I have a 2nd grader who is a great reader and I need some book recommendations for her. I love Ruby Lavender as a character! She had me thinking, "Great garden of peas!" all week. This book is written in prose but has letters between Ruby and her grandmother written in. It's an interesting story about life after a close family member dies. I love that there is lots of inferencing to figure out. I'm not sure I am going to recommend it to my 2nd grader seeing that it has such an intense look at emotions and death and forgiveness and I'm not sure she's entirely ready for that, but I did thoroughly enjoy this book!
