Sweet stories -- with one exception
on September 17, 2007
Rosemary Wells' illustrations are cute, and I enjoy most of her work. The episodes on this DVD are quite cute and generally feature something rare in most stuff for children: siblings who get along! I was shocked by the episode with Peter, the 7 1/2 year old, whom Ruby and her friend are waiting for, or, should I say, preening themselves for. The idea that flirtatious behavior (and, yes, they are flirting) and pandering to a boy's taste in entertainment ("Do you want to play jacks? Croquet?") is the best that Ruby can do saddened me, especially in a DVD aimed at young children. It soured my view of this DVD.
