I really love Ralph Tells a Story because insecurities about writing are so common among children (and adults)! Often, they feel they have nothing interesting to share or they don’t know how to transfer the thoughts in their head to the paper. This book shows them how to overcome both of these problems. The illustrations by the author are precious, and her background as a first-grade teacher is evident by the realism in the children’s comments and behavior. Every elementary school teacher should read this book to her students to inspire them to write and tell stories! Visit the author’s website at www.abbyhanlon.com .
A WRITING TIP FROM ABBY HANLON, AUTHOR OF RALPH TELLS A STORY!(Amazon Children's Publishing, Sept. 2012)
Ask your child to tell you a story. As he/she talks, write it down verbatim. Then get ready to read it again and again because your child will love hearing it. Another fun thing to do is write and illustrate a story together. It's also great practice for them to retell a favorite story from a book.
