Ruby is a copycat!

On the day Angela wears a red bow in her hair,
Ruby returns from lunch with a red bow in her hair. When Angela wears a flowered sweater, Ruby returns from lunch wearing a flowered sweater.

Ruby even copies Angela's poem!

Fortunately, Ruby has the patient and perceptive Miss Hart as her teacher. Miss Hart helps Ruby discover her own creative resources, which keeps Ruby literally jumping for joy!

In this sensitive and endearing tale, Peggy Rathmann reveals, with charming off-beat illustrations, the universal struggle of a child trying to discover her own individuality.
