In third grade you get to sign up for a musical instrument Ruby is convinced that she is destined to play the harp and play in the orchestra. But for Ruby Lu, third grade also means an especially big change: her father loses his job. Ruby is determined to change things, though. This is another funny, charming, heartfelt gem from Lenore Look. Yu sends home a letter about her bad grades—Ruby draws a picture of him being struck by lightning, then features him in a less-than-flattering haiku.
Ruby and her family, along with cousin Flying Duck and the rest of the 20th Avenue Plum Club, are as comfortably familiar—and entertaining—as ever. Is it all too much for anyone — even the Empress of Everything — to handle? Jones, Judy Moody, and Ramona, her charm, especially as it is threaded through with a funky multicultural sense of style and play, is unique.
Most days the best thing about being Ruby is everything. Or when she gives a talk at the school safety assembly on the benefits of reflective tape. Or when she rides the No. Like when her mom suggests Chinese school on Saturdays. Come along with Ruby Lu in her chapter-book debut — which even includes a flip book of a magic trick — and share the good and the not-so-good days with an almost eight-year-old Asian-American kid. Kids who have taken a shine to the likable lass will look forward to her return. Brush of the Gods. Who wants to learn calligraphy when your brush is meant for so much more?
Soon others are admiring his unbelievable creations on walls around the city, and one day his art comes to life!
Alvin Ho: Allergic to Babies, Burglars, and Other Bumps in the Night
Little has been written about Daozi, but Look and So masterfully introduce the artist to children. Children will appreciate the imaginative aspect of the text as well as the inspiring story of a boy who follows his dreams. Inviting and appealing, this title serves as a great addition to a unit on ancient China or Chinese Art. Luckily, her grandparents know that a trip to the local paint-your-own-pottery studio is exactly what she needs to feel creative again.
While her family runs about getting ready for the traditional Chinese wedding — preparing for the tea ceremony, exchanging good-luck money called hungbau, helping the bride with her many dresses — Jenny is crying on the inside. With her true-to-life voice, Jen conveys real feeling—making her a memorable model to kids facing change. Katie loves to show her grandma how to dress a Barbie…and GninGnin loves to show Katie how to make rice dumplings. More than anything, Katie longs to go with GninGnin to work, to crack a mountain of crabs alongside her at the crab cannery.
GninGnin swings a heavy mallet from sunup to sundown in a noisy, smelly room, earning barely enough for bus fare and a fish for dinner. The facts are stark, Love as Strong as Ginger is a fine addition to the realistic stories of coming to America. Like Like. Hi Jasmine! That makes me so happy! Keep reading and writing and asking good questions. A good writer is always curious.

Thank you for all your excellent questions. I am further impressed by the expeditiousness of your inquiry, as I had left your school just a few hours ago.
Thank you, too, for loving my work, it makes all the hours that I spend alone writing, worth it!!! So now to answer your questions:. I was inspired to write by the authors that I enjoyed reading as a child: E. White, Beverly Cleary, Judy Bloom. Then when I was in high school and university, I read Homer in Latin! So logically, I reasoned that if I wrote something, I could also be like that, that I could also live forever. So then I had to ask myself, what do I want to say that is worthy of being kept alive forever?
If you can answer that question, then you, too, should be an author.
