Ruby Paints a Picture.
Ruby is a young raccoon with an itch to paint a picture of "a big tree." But as a series of her animal friends stop by, she decides to add each of them to her canvas, causing a bit of a space problem. To top it all off, Ruby's friends complain that she fails to paint "the very best part" of each of them. But the moral of this story is that Ruby has indeed captured what she believes is the essence of her friends: their smiling faces. This book, part of the I Can Read series, entertains as well as sends a message praising subjective artistic interpretation.
