Ruby in Her Own Time


Ruby in Her Own Time by Jonathan Emmett

This is a great book for young children. It tells a story of a little duck named Ruby and what her life is like growing up. Her siblings learn how to play, eat, swim, and fly a little bit sooner than Ruby does. The father duck is concerned about Ruby, but the mother ducks knows that Ruby will develop “in her own time.” 

The phrase, “In her own time” is repeated throughout the picture book. It teaches children about patience and understanding

This would be a great book to use in a school setting to teach about diversity in the classroom and equity. Not only is this book accessible to young readers, it’s perfect for older students and adults! This is one of my FAVORITE children’s books!

Happy Reading!
