Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ruby is unlike most little girls in old China. Instead of aspiring to get married, Ruby is determined to attend university when she grows up, just like the boys in her family. Based upon the inspirational story of the author's grandmother and accompanied by richly detailed illustrations, Ruby's Wish is an engaging portrait of a young girl who strives for more and a family who rewards her hard work and courage.

It is a very enjoyable book. A true highlight for all girls. It shows that if you work hard and dream you might just get what you want.
