Ruby has family all around the world. Her father is from Japan, but she has aunts and uncles and siblings and cousins everywhere. Ruby loves her family and wants to be helpful and make people around her happy - especially during Christmas time. *
Sometimes Ruby is a little bossy. She says things like “Get me the milk from the lowest shelf of the fridge” and “Combine two spoonfuls of cocoa with the milk”. Ruby learns quickly. If you show her how to make up her bed, she’ll have no trouble doing it a hundred times over. *
And she’s very independent: Ruby doesn’t like other people telling her how to clean her room, only what should be done. *
All the adults say Ruby is a sensible, nice kid. But sometime’s she can be mischievous. If you’re not very precise in ordering your chocolate the kitchen might end up be flooding with hot cocoa.
Ruby’s favorite things in the world are her precious gems. The colorful, glittering gemstones are presents from all over the world. When Ruby closes her eyes the gems become magic and help her do things she never could have done alone. *
Oh, and the coolest thing about Ruby? She and her friends have their own secret language. Can you guess what happens when Ruby says:
puts “hip hip hooray “*5
