Ruby Lu, Empress of Everything by Lenore Look
Ruby Lu, Empress of Everything

algeer, September 16, 2008

I read the book Ruby Lu Empress of Everything. The book was a story abou a young girl dealing with immigration, friendship, special needs, and everday issues of a second grade girl. Throught out the book she helped her cousin deal with life in an American School. Ruby neglected her studies and fell behind in class. I thought this book was a fun and interesting book to read to second graders. Children love to hear about stories from their age group and they learn to identify with the character and the situations explored int he text. I would use this book to teach children about the way people deal with different family dynamics.
