    One thought on “Ralph Tells a Story

    1. Cheryl

      I bet this helps a lot of kids (and parents!) who don't feel that they can be creative. I kinda feel awkward about seeing creative writing as an assignment but when I think about it, it is a skill that everyone needs to try to develop, just like arithmetic and spelling, etc. The pictures are odd, but very well-suited to the text. I especially love the "our favorite characters" display with everyone from Madeline to Pigeon.

      How many of you have had writer's block? From time to time, right? Well, Ralph seems to have been born with it. No matter what he does, Ralph can't think of any stories to write during language arts time. He is surprised to learn that his classmate Daisy has written so many stories she cannot staple them--stories about him! Finally when he is cornered he tells how he once saw an inchworm at the park, and his classmates questions help him to realize there really was a story there. The cartoonlike [...]

      Adorable. Ralph's story (or lack thereof) needs to be told during every beginning of the year writing workshop. We know that despite modeling with our kids, despite heart maps and quick writes, despite sketching and turn and talk time that we have kids in our rooms who struggle to put their ideas on paper. Ralph's story (or lack thereof) will resonate with these kids; it will resonate with anyone who stares into an abyss wishing for an idea to magically pop up. I'm other words, Ralph's story (or [...]

      Ralph, the main character, struggles to write a story during writing time every day. He does everything he can to get out of his chair, run errands for the teacher, and make up excuses for why he needs to leave the classroom. He is in a writer's block, until one day, his classmates help him come up with a story from a real-life experience. Ralph writes a brilliant story about a worm and all of his classmates love it. From that moment on, Ralph knows that if he gets into a writer's block again, t [...]

      I homeschool my three little ones so we're always reading books. This was a great one that touched close to home. It was basically about a struggling writer, but on a child's level. Ralph had trouble finding a way to tell his story, but he figured it out in amazing ways. This is a perfect read for any kid under 12!

    6. Amy

      I wish I were an elementary school teacher just so that I could read this book to my class to get them interested in writing (then I'd follow it up with Rufus the Writer). "Stories are everywhere," says Ralph's teacher. And it's true. Every day, kids have stories to tell of what happened to them. But Ralph can't seem to think of anything. It's when another kid starts writing stories about things that happen to Ralph that he realizes that his life is full of stories and is able to write one of hi [...]

      Great for the Ralph in Your FamilyI wish we had read this prior to second grade. Ralph is a kid who isn't the best at thinking up stories to write. His tips are invaluable for your six or seven-year old. (Especially #4)

    8. Alyson (Kid Lit Frenzy)

      This is really a fun book about the struggles to write from the perspective of a little boy. I can think of so many kids who would relate to Ralph.

      After reading Ralph Tells A Story, I was very intrigued on the topic of the picture book. This book is about a young boy who, with a little help from his friend, gets over a case of writing block. This little boy, Ralph, has trouble getting past putting his name on the top of the paper and can never think of any stories to write about. This book brings comic relief to a topic that many young students deal with. I liked how the plot is very relatable because it makes this book a possible good rea [...]

      This is the second book I've read and shared with my daughter by Abby Hanlon. The first one was recommended by the Children's Books reading group and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it even though it is too advanced for my daughter. There is a wonderfully playful, joyous, and energetic feel to Hanlon's books and I plan to share it with my daughter when she is older. This book has many funny, messy illustrations that are fun to follow and captures the way a little child is confronted with a school a [...]

      Brilliant Writers' Workshop IntroI am so excited about using this book at the beginning of the school year to introduce Writer's Workshop to my students! How many Ralph's fill the seats in our classrooms? If just one can catch the writing bug this year, wouldn't it be wonderful!

    12. Brigitte Brulz

      Really cute book about a boy who can't think of anything to write. I thought it was really funny that one of his classmates was writing stories about him even though he didn't think anything ever happened to him that was worth writing about. Great book for teaching kids about creative writing, observing things around you, and asking questions to get more details. There are stories everywhere if you know where (and how) to look.

    13. Patricia Vermillion

      Where do you get your ideas?A great read for encouraging ideas for student's writing. Excellent resource. Can't wait to share this book with teachers and students.

    14. Deanna

      Cute story A cute story about a little boy who was having trouble getting started on his writing assignment. A nice story.

    15. Stargazer

      It was okBe good to introduce a story writing topic in class but it wasn't that inspiring Glad I read it on Kindle rather than paying for it

    16. Marcia

      Cute story of a very young boy who struggles during writing time. He learns that we all have stories to tell, if we look closely.

    17. Katherine

      I read this to my class of fifth graders to launch writing workshop. It's an awesome book and my kiddos loved seeing that stories happen everywhere, all the time!

    18. Rebecca Caufman

      Just the book I needed to teach to 3rd graders tomorrow. The illustrations are hilarious. Teaches kids that they can find a story ANYWHERE!

    19. Melanie Patrick

      A great educational resource to use for mentor texts in writing. Every student has writers block when starting an essay. This shows how to come up with ideas, characters, and topics. It also shows that everyone has this problem sometimes when they write.

    20. Kate Puleo Unger

      I read this book to Christopher, and we both enjoyed it. Ralph can never think of anything to write about in school. His teacher tells him that stories are everywhere. Finally, he remembers a time when an inch worm crawled on his knee at the park. With the help of his classmates, Ralph finds his storymsradius/2017/08/juv

      A WinnerAny child will love this book and little boys will absolutely identify with Ralphie. This book and, I'm guessing all Ralph's stories shown at the end, will greatly appeal to girls, boys and any adult who is reading it to them. I would have loved thus book as a child, heck I enjoyed it now.

    22. D'Anne

      This book is great. It really captures the frustration of "writer's block," but also celebrates the fact that kids are natural storytellers. The illustrations are great and the "kid spelling" is perfect. Honestly, it's full of good writing advice for writers of any age.
