More About Ruthie
Ruthie Darling, author of “THE HOLE STORY,”  is about nothing/zero and spatial concepts. Her second children’s book, “MIRANDA THE PANDA,”  is about looking in other places when everything you need is right in front of you.  These first two books are illustrated by Tricia Capraro. Ruthie’s third book, “MRS. LIBRA AND ZOEY ZEBRA,” is a charming story about learning to accept and appreciate yourself for who you are. Following “MRS. LIBRA AND ZOEY ZEBRA” is the charming “MOONBEAM” and the concept here is: “It’s the way I was born, ” and applies to any age, any person, any place in the world. One of her newest stories, “MY ANGEL WATCHES OVER ME”, was written for everyone in the world – those who have the odds against them as well as those who have the odds in their favor, followed by “‘ONE’DERFUL,” a timeless story of sharing and caring. In “THE ONE-STOP ADOPT SHOP”  MORE THAN A CAT AND A DOG AND A CAT ON A LOG, a made-to-order trip which may lead the dreamer to visiting an animal shelter, a pet store or both, thus leading to an adoption one of Ruthie’s passions. “T.T. TURKEY” THE TURKEY THAT GOT AWAY presents to the reader a Universal message: “It’s important to have wishes and dreams because if we believe, anything is possible!” Coming this Summer, 2024, Ruthies latest creation is an Easter fantasy adventure where you’ll meet “MR. MUBBLE” and there’s no doubt about it–he spells trouble! Due to his naughty behavior and the townspeople’s reactions, you can see how it’s possible to change one’s behavior–ending up with a positive outcome! Ruthie Darling, “The Princess of Rhymes” never rests! Following MR. MUBBLE is PERCY PENGUIN – THE PENGUIN WHO WOULDN’T SWIM!

“I highly recommend reading all of Ruthie Darling’s children’s books. Not only will children enjoy the stories, but there is always a ‘moral’ to the story, which opens up a ‘whole’ other story for discussion!”

“The students at James Madison Elementary School really enjoyed Ruthie Darling’s “The HOLE Story”.  They hung on every descriptive word as she shared her story during the Dr. Seuss Day Celebration in March.  After Ruthie stopped reading, the children chattered on about various ‘holes’. The story opened up their imaginations. In addition, the students watched the pages turn and anticipated the little red haired girl’s adventures with a hole of some kind on every page. Awesome!”
Kathleen Klug – Indio, CADesert Sands Unified School District, James Madison Elementary School
“The beauty of this book & beautiful story for me is that it transports me back to a time without stress, or money, or bills, or taxes to a time when I was young and rediscovered the joy experiencing the beauty and awe of learning and the universe.  Thank you for the beautiful vacation.”
Charles – Starwood, WA
“Ruthie Darling’s, aka princess of rhymes, books are one of my favorites for kids and adults. It will bring on laughter, and a great introduction to the concept of rhyming.  Her books come with striking pictures. Many of them, including Miranda the Panda, Zoey Zebra, One Stop Adopt Shop, and her latest T.T Turkey, the Turkey that got Away, are stories that are inspiring and life-affirming messages that all ages will love. Darling’s motto is empowering children and adults through the wonderful world of children’s literature. And she does just that.”
