This cute, colorful, and nicely-illustrated little interactive children's book from 2014 is designed with 3 different endings. It is from the "Truthy Ruthy" series of children's books by author Sari Barel. Although everyone wants Ruthy to get rid of her pacifier, she is reluctant (as many children are). The book allows your child to select one of three possible journeys on the pacifier subject.In story-line #1, the pacifier chooses to move on and go to another child that really needs him (more than your child does).In story-line #2, Ruthy decides she has grown up and lets go of her pacifier.In story-line #3, Ruthy keeps her pacifier forever, even when she is a grandmother. Story-line #3 should steer your child to his/her own "buy-in" that he/she will look pretty ridiculous as an adult with a pacifier (in college, at work, etc.) This book allows your child the freedom to make a decision, yet steers the child to the RIGHT decision.
Have you ever had a pacifier? Do you remember when you gave it up, or does your mom or dad tell you about it? Do you know why children and babies use pacifiers?Truthy Ruthy loved her pacifier. It gave her comfort, but everyone around her wanted her to give it up. Her momma, her poppa, her grandfather, her entire family wanted Ruthy to give up her pacifier. The author, sari Barel has written a fun book about Truthy Ruthy and her pacifier. What is great fun is that you have three choices to decide what the end of the book will be. You can read all three endings, and then choose the one you like best. Parents/ teachers will have a good time reading this book to their children. A lot of conversation will take place when you decide which ending you want, and then you can talk about why you chose that ending. My favorite books have a lesson to be learned within the story, and this one certainly fits the bill. Your children and you can decide what lesson is to be learned.Recommended. 07-01-14
Author Sari Barel takes a unique stance on teaching children how to relinquish the pacifier and she involves parents in a most thoughtful and constructive way. Together with illustrator Neda Fuchedzhieva she has crated a fun book that gives parents insight on how to correct a certain behavioral problem - and have fun doing it.Truthy Ruthy cannot willingly give up her pacifier at bedtime or any time - it `makes me look happy'. Her mother decides to have her make up a song of farewell to her pacifier, her grandfather tells her it is not tasty and so on. Truthy Ruthy is give three ways to free herself of the pacifier - have the pacifier prefer to go to another child, to hang in the pacifier tree, or keep using it until she was a grandmother! Three choices for ending for the pacifier problem - each with its merits and its flawsNot only is this little story entertaining but it also carries a very unique way of learning how to end an obsession. This book is a joint venture for children and parents, and as usual Sari Barel handles it very well indeed. Grady Harp, July 14

I won't spoil the surprise, but your toddler will LOVE it!Well done, Sari. This one will be a frequent star at bedtime for thousands of kids. :)
I find this story alright. Katie my 4 yr. old grandchild likes the 3 different endings. She likes the story, even though she gave up her bunny when she was a year old on her own. She asked why Ruthy still had a pacified.
I loved the book and believe that it’s suitable not only for children who are ‘addicted’ to their pacifiers, but also for those addicted to objects or games. My nephew who is 6-years-old has already weaned off his pacifier, but he is now hooked to his pillow! The book gave him the opportunity, for the first time, to talk about it. He was able to express laughter and a little bit of frustration. Thank you. Thank you. Thanks!
I liked the ‘endings’ choices. My son plays with my Kindle and skips through the different endings with enthusiasm. He especially loved Ruthy’s imaginative ending where she stuck with her pacifier forever!
The story and pictures are great. I love how we choose our own endings. The only thing I suggest is not to have the 15% of information of books and sites at the end. I do however love the authors books.
