This book seems to be for children younger than 9 - 12 years old. I ordered this for my 9 year old niece for Xmas and it seems she needs a higher level book than this. I think the book descriptions may be labeled incorrectly on Amazon.com. After receiving, the book I looked at the back and it says Reading Level 3 (RL3). My niece is in 4th grade and reading 4.5 - 6.5 reading level books.

Be aware that this book is actually for 3rd graders. Unfortunately, I ordered several books from Amazon.com that said for ages 9 - 12, however, upon receiving them and checking the back of the books, I find that they are for RL 2.2, 2.4, and 3. These books are entitled:

I bought this book for my daughter and she loves it. I enjoy the broad imagination the author uses. The written langugae introduces new words to young readers and help them to use words to express feelings and thoughts. My daughter enjoys reading this book to her friends and to the family. I am excited that she is excited about reading.

I have a 9 year old daughter who isn't interested in reading anything unless it has something to do with Chris Brown! This easy read chapter book really held her interest. She finished the book in three days and is asking for additional titles in this series. She was able to relate to the storyline which kept her in stitches as she laughed at the pranks throughout the story. This was a great buy. I am looking forward to other books in the series to keep her just as engaged and eager to read.

I love these series. Ruby is a strong, confident and happy little girl. My daughter loves to sing just like Ruby and can really relate to the character. She has her cute cornrolls like my daughter and enjoys being with her friends. GREAT BOOK my daughter reads it to me with no problems. The chapters are short and interesting. Great illustrations, he has done a great job with this series.
