Ruby, Mono Ve, Mono Hace/Ruby, the Copycat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the class turns against the new girl, Ruby, a blatant copycat, their teacher finds a way to help Ruby demonstrate her own talents.

Al principio, cuando la chica nueva, Ruby, imita a Ángela, ésta se siente halagada. Pero después, cuando Ruby comienza a contar como suyas algunas de las experiencias que Ángela ha vivido, ésta última se molesta. La maestra del salón le enseña a Ruby una gran lección: sus propias experiencias son una mejor manera para hacer amigos. Rathman escribe con una gran sensibilidad sobre la evolución de una amistad entre niñas de primer grado, y exagera sólo lo necesario para darle un toque de humor a la historia.

Synopsis:

When her classmate Angela puts a red ribbon in her hair, Ruby does the same. When Angela wears a floral dress, Ruby comes back from lunch with flowers on her dress. Although Ruby does not mean any harm, Angela soon refuses to speak to her. Fortunately, Ruby's unusual teacher helps her discover her own creativity and identity.

Synopsis:

"At first, when new-girl Ruby imitates Angela, Angela takes it in good part: they must be kindred spirits. But as she realizes that Ruby's claims (only Angela was really a bridesmaid) aren't true, Angela is ever-more annoyed with her mimicry. A sensitive teacher helps Ruby see that doing her own thing is a better way to make friends. Rathmann plots the evolution of a friendship going sour, primary-grade style, with sensitivity and just enough exaggeration to provide humor.

It's too bad that the teacher is needed to help Ruby understand the effect of her behavior, but her gradual realization is believably drawn, and children have been known to profit from good advice. Like the text, the simple illustrations nicely capture the nuances of the characters' feelings. A solid debut." Picture book. 4-8) — Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved. --This text refers to the School and Library Binding edition.

The illustrations are appropriately stylized to clearly deliver character emotions, and there are subtle details in the pictures that breathe more life into the characters.
