Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ribbon Rescue jillian is dressed in a traditional ribbon dress, obviously made of many ribbons, when she realizes people are in need of her help, and the ribbons are what will do the trick. The book focuses on sharing, giving back, helping others in need, and inner beauty. The story could be used to highlight the tradition of the ribbon dress (can't think of the culture it was representing at the moment), or just to teach a lesson on sharing/helping others. Would recommend to any elementary grade.
