Ruby ShinesBright and the Birthday Cake by RosaBella Bloom is a delightful story in which young readers learn the consequences of eating too much of a sweet treat. Almost every child has wanted to eat a lot of a special sweet treat. As adults, we know this can end in an upset stomach, but as children, we don't often think of the end result. This book is perfect for teaching young children that it is not healthy for their little tummies to eat a lot of sweet treats at one time, and it could make them very sick. I loved the story and its meaning! The characters and plot development are creatively developed and can be used by parents, guardians, and teachers to promote healthy eating habits.
