“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!”

Kristen – Spokane, WA
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!

“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.”
