A fun story with maps and mazes shows children where their food comes from.
Ruby and Ned gather eggs from their hens and ride their red truck to deliver the eggs--to the farmer’s market, the restaurant, the school, the grocery story, and the bakery. The baker uses the eggs in her yummiest cookies--and gives them to Ruby and Ned!
• Interactive: with 6 mazes and illustrations with fun details to “spy.” • Lots of learning fun: map skills, sequencing, STEM, communities, and more. • Picture clues help children pick out important words. • Female role model: Ruby drives a truck and is a farmer. • Art style has the elegant charm of American folk art.
