Let's meet Ruby who loves to dance, move around, bounce, and play in the story Ruby's Bubble by Lisele Lindsay. When she gets excited, Ruby forgets to share her space with others and bumps into them. Sometimes accidents occur because of that and she and her friends get hurt. She asks everyone to remind her to share the space around her. She imagines herself to be inside a colorful bubble and shares with readers three easy steps to relax. Ruby says once she relaxes, she imagines her favorite colors swirling inside her heart and how they spread all over her body after they fill her chest. These colors form a bubble around her with warmth and light inside the bubble. The outer surface of the bubble gives her a protective hug and Ruby feels peaceful inside it. Let's all try out what Ruby does and create a safe space around us.
Ruby's Bubble by Lisele Lindsay is a good reminder to readers to be careful of their personal space, and the relaxation and visualization techniques in the book will help them create a happy and safe world.
