bookshelves: imagination, friendship

This is a cute book about a little girl named Ruthie and her imaginary friend. I would incorporate this book in my classroom at any available opportunity. It would prompt a great discussion about what things are pretend (or imaginary) and what things are real. I share a lot of people's feeling that Ruthie's parents could have been more understanding, but I also feel like that story line allows for a lot of discussion about feelings. Sweet book!

Jessica Allen I remember my mother getting this book for me as a young child because it was titled Jessica! I really did enjoy the book and remember wanting someone to read it to me all the time. I only wish I still had the book today and many other books I owned as a child. They would have all came in handy now that I am teaching.
