Ruby’s Sword by Jacqueline Vessid and Illustrated by Paola Zalimi

Ruby’s two big brothers always leave her behind and exclude her when they go outside to play.  But then Ruby finds three sticks that she decides are “dragon fighting swords”.  Her vivid imagination transforms everything outside into her kingdom!  Will her brothers be included in Ruby’s adventures?   Check out Jacqueline Vessid’s debut picture book to find out. Maybe Ruby’s creativity will inspire other children to invent new ways to play with sticks! Find this book in our catalog here.
