Book Description: Seven-year old Ruth can’t speak, but she can certainly think. She knows her birthday is going to be good as her beloved great-aunt has exciting plans for her. What she doesn’t expect is a magical paper nun, an encounter with a bully who may not be what she seems or a school day to remember. Because when her special day is over, Ruth is in for some VERY big surprises.
Mary’s Review: Her parents dead, Ruth, 7 who can’t speak is taken in by her Great-Aunt Alice. Great-Aunt Alice is a very special lady who loves Ruth very much. It’s Ruth’s birthday, one Great-Aunt Alice has gone out of her way to make very special for Ruth in more ways than one. It begins with a special birthday breakfast and a tiny origami nun. A very magical origami nun, one that will teach Ruth some very important lessons in life and help her make a new friend. Magic is in the air. Come see how Ruth and others learn the importance of respect for each other even though they are different and that each person has a different story or reason for being different.
I recommend this book for ages 6 and up.
