Ruby has big plans for Valentine's Day. She wants to show all her friends and family-and all the folks in town-how much she cares about them. So she sets about making cards and special treats to deliver on her favorite day of the year. But Ruby works so hard on her Valentine's Day wishes, she sleeps through the holiday. What will she do? Ruby can't bear the thought of waiting a whole year until Valentine's Day comes around again. Maybe her cockatoo Lovebird has an idea. Ruby can deliver her Valentine's gifts a day late! After all, there's never a bad day to show your friends and family how much you love them. Young readers everywhere delight in the stories of Laurie Friedman, best known for her Mallory series. "Ruby herself is a charming heroine. A Valentine's offering as sweet as candy."-Kirkus Reviews

"Ruby is known for her love of the phrases "I love you" and "be mine." Imagine Ruby's dismay when she finds that, after days of preparation, she has slept through that special February day. Ingenuity reigns, and Ruby creatively handles the situation, bringing satisfaction to herself and delightful treats to her friends. Danielle Friedman narrates deliberately, with careful enunciation and slow pacing. She emphasizes the repetitiveness of the Valentine countdown so listeners can visualize the frosted cake and the curled ribbons and also enjoy the fanciful rhymes. Listeners might be inspired to emulate Ruby and share compliments and appreciative tokens more often. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
