Hello, My Name is Ruby

Philip Stead

Ruby is a small bird seeking new friends. She politely introduces herself to various birds, getting mixed results. When Ruby asks "Are you ever afraid because you are small?" a red warbler invites her to join a flock that flies in an elephant formation, creating an imposing shape. When she meets a peacock Ruby finds herself rebuffed, standing alone in a dreary gray rainstorm. Expressive gouache illustrations show the winsome birds and colorful landscapes in simple renderings. Another charming tale from the creator of A Home for Bird (2012) Ages 4-7
