In her first book, Do You? Ruth uses names for the fictional children from each letter in the alphabet. She wants your children to relate to the names of the fictional characters, perhaps experiencing excitement over knowing a real child with that name who may attend their school or live in their neighborhood.
Ruth also wanted to introduce nouns that start with the letters of the alphabet and help expand a young child's vocabulary. Ruth wants your children to learn to read this book and then ask themselves, "Do I do or feel these things?" and be able to share their feelings and adventures with others.
