Product Information
Nothing ever happens to Ralph. So every day when it's time to write stories, Ralph thinks really hard. He stares at his paper. He stares at the ceiling. But he has no stories! With the help of his classmates, Ralph realizes that a great story can be about something very little . . . and that maybe he really does have some stories to tell. Debut author/illustrator Abby Hanlon's endearing text and charming watercolor and colored pencil illustrations prove that writing can be fun! This story works nicely with Lucy Calkins' Writer's Workshop model of teaching.

    Comments about Ralph Tells a Story:

    This is a wonderful book for my kindergartner grandson. He was stressing so much about thinking of things to write about at school, that he did not want to go. This story was almost written for him.
    We also love her illustrations.
    BONUS; we got an autographed copy!
    We will be looking for more books from this author.
    Thank you Abby Hanlon
