Review
K-Gr 2 –This story zeros in on one episode in Ruth's youth and will quickly capture the interest of children. Young George sees a dollar sitting on the bar of his father's tavern and uses it to buy frozen treats for all of the kids on the street. The cartoon artwork portrays the time period (1902) and provides sight clues for new readers. However, the story is sprinkled with a few difficult words (such as "through" and "sighed"), creating stumbling blocks for beginners, and it ends much too abruptly, leaving youngsters frustrated and unsatisfied.–Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX --Anne Knickerbocker (Reviewed June 1, 2004) (School Library Journal, vol 50, issue 6, p110)
