Ribbon Rescue

Written by: Robert Munsch

First line: As soon as her grandmother finished making the ribbon dress, Jillian put it on and ran out into the front yard.

Why you should read this book: With playful repetition that appeals to young readers, Munsch tells the story of a girl who is more concerned with helping others than maintaining her finery. Jillian's tradition Mohawk costume pays a heavy toll in aid of a bunch of people who are not as prepared for their big day as she is. In the end, Jillian has no ribbons, but she has the gratitude of many.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You wouldn't have set food outdoors in your beautiful new dress.
