Hi, have you ever wondered what happened a long time ago about Ruby Bridges life, well let me tell you. When Ruby was small, she was very poor. Her mother and father had no job. One day they moved to New Orleans and thats when her father got a job.

I loved the book because it was wonderful. I never read a book so special. I loved the part when she prayed to god because it showed she loved and believed in him. I loved Ruby Bridges and her family because they were christian and I'm a christian.

I think other people should read this book because it is nice, and it has great meaning to it.
