Love, Ruby Valentine

By Laurie Friedman
Illustrated by Lynne Avril

After Ruby Valentine misses her favourite holiday of the year, her parrot, Lovebird, convinces her that every day is the perfect day to say 'I love you'.

Deep in the heart of Heartland lives Ruby Valentine and her trusty parrot Lovebird. Ruby's favorite day of the year is Valentine's Day—she loves to say "I love you" and make cards and treats to deliver to everyone in her town. But Ruby is so exhausted that she sleeps right through the holiday. Although Ruby is worried that she'll have to wait a whole year to tell everyone that she loves them, Lovebird convinces her to deliver her treats and messages of love even though they're a day late. To Ruby's surprise, no one minds.
