ABOUT THE JUST FOR ME

The adorable and spunky Ruby learns a new life lesson about sharing: "just for me" isn't nearly as much fun as "just for us!"

When Ruby has something special, she likes to say "just for me!"   That includes everything from her dolly to the colorful candy sprinkles she uses to decorate her cookies. But when a friend comes over for playtime, Ruby takes her mantra just one step too far, and a precious toy is broken. Just when it looks like playtime has been ruined, Ruby realizes that having a friend is much more fun than having everything to herself.
"Sharing is caring" has never felt so spot-on as it does in JUST FOR ME. With sparse text and bright, bold illustrations, this is the perfect story for parents to share with their little readers--and for readers to share with their friends!

ABOUT A BOY LIKE YOU

A BOY LIKE YOU encourages every boy to embrace all the things that make him unique, to follow his dreams, to be brave and to ask for help, to tell his own story and listen to the stories of those around him.  In an age when boys are expected to fit into a particular mold, this book celebrates all the wonderful ways to be a boy.  

ABOUT Jennifer Hansen Rolli

Jennifer’s been painting since the day her dad bought her a professional painter’s box at 10 years of age. For many years she enjoyed her Philadelphia design firm, but after her 3rd child, she fell in love with all the children’s books she was reading and couldn’t resist making up stories and pictures for her own. Jennifer’s first picture book, JUST ONE MORE, went on to become a Dolly Parton Imagination Library selection 3 years in a row. New for 2019 is a second Ruby book, JUST FOR ME, where Ruby realizes that having a friend is much more fun than having everything to herself. Other books include, CLAUDIA & MOTH  and HOW TO TRICK A TOOH FAIRY.
