Read full description of the books:
Ruby's mother is coming home with her new baby brother, but Ruby isn't very excited about it. Perhaps she'll use her magic want to turn him into a bat? Or maybe he'll be a magical elf who will turn her into a mouse? As Ruby gets to know her brother, though, she dreams up the adventures they'll have together.
This picture book addresses a very real fear--what will happen when the new baby comes home? Ruby imagines problems that may occur and experiences jealousy when more attention is paid to Leo than her. Many children will empathize with Ruby's conundrum. The voice in which White tells the story combines typical child vernacular and more adult-like expressions. In the beginning, Ruby's voice is childlike and fearful. The second half of the book uses adult phrasing as she dreams of the things she and Leo will do together.
The illustrations go hand in hand with the text on each two-page spread. Even without reading the text, a reader could still read the story through Latimer's bright and accessible drawings.
One draw back of this book is the intermittently successful attempts at the use of rhyme. Some phrases hit the rhyme right on while others just miss. Still other pages make no attempts at rhyming. This lack of consistency in the use of rhyme is distracting for me as a reader. During a read aloud, I will employ phrasing that de-emphasizes the attempts at rhyme.
Purpose: pleasure, introducing a new baby into the family, caring for a baby, families, fears, using imagination, personal narrative
