This word document contains a reader's theater script for the story Love, Ruby Valentine by Laurie Friedman. The book is written in rhyming text so it would be a really fun reader's theater to perform.
Ruby is a girl who lives in Heartland and she loves Valentine's Day. In fact, she works so hard preparing for it--that she accidentally sleeps through the entire day. She wakes up feeling discouraged that she missed her favorite day and even more discouraged that she'll have to wait a whole year to tell everyone she loves them. Then, her pet bird suggests she give out her cards and candy today, on the fifteenth.
Reluctantly she passes out her gifts and cards on the day after Valentine's--and to her surprise everyone is thrilled! And Ruby discovers that any day is a good day to let others know you love them!
