Rita and Ralph’s Rotten Day

We rated this book:


Rita and Ralph live very near each other, each in a small house on top of a small hill. Every morning they would each come outside and run down their hill and up another small hill in between their houses to meet and play together, dancing, making daisy chains, and more. But one day they added a new game called sticks and stones. Rita got hurt and Ralph knew it was bad. They each ran home to their own house and closed their doors. Ralph felt bad and went to Rita’s house to apologize, but by the time he got there, he was hot and grumpy and yelled his apology, which didn’t sound like an apology. Can they find a way to make up and be friends again?

Author Carmen Agra Deedy has written a very cute story with a very important message that will help youngsters find their way through friendship trouble, something all kids face. Illustrator Pete Oswald’s stylized illustrations using bright colors and lots of fun details will keep little ones interested all the way through. This fun book will teach a good lesson without young readers ever realizing it.
