Ruby Flew Too!

(Ruby in Her Own Time)

Authored by Jonathan Emmett

She is the littlest of five ducklings. She is the last to eat and the last to swim. Father Duck worries that Ruby won't catch up. But Mother Duck knows that Ruby will flourish ... in her own time!

A warm and reassuring story that encourages children to discover the world at their own pace. Heartbreakingly beautiful, this is a very special book.

'Ruby Flew Too!' is the first of three 'Ruby the Duckling' books. Discover Ruby's other adventures in 'This Way, Ruby!' and 'Go For It, Ruby!'.

This book was originally published in the US as "Ruby, In Her Own Time"
