Ruby's New Home by Tony and Lauren Dungy illus. by Vanessa Brantley Newton
A family is very excited about getting a new puppy named Ruby. Everyone loves Ruby. Jordan, Justin and Jade all want to make her their own. The mother encourages the three kids to take turns playing with Ruby. This was a fun early reader, with straight forward enjoyable text. The lesson of sharing fits nicely into the story and doesn't take away from the joy or excitement of a new pet. As always Newton's illustrations are wonderfully colorful.
