Rita and Ralph's Rotten Day
Even when you're really, really mad at your friend, it only takes two words to make it better!
A comforting tale about healing hurt feelings and discussing the ups and downs of friendship.
Have you ever been REALLY mad at your best friend?
In two little houses,on two little hills,lived two best friends. So begins the story of Rita and Ralph. Every day they meet to play beneath the apple tree. It's always fun and games―until one roundly rotten day when a new game means someone ends up crying. Who knew it could be so hard to say "I'm sorry"? Just when it seems nothing will ever be right again, a surprising thing happens. The old friends try something new, that isn't new at all. Something they've done a hundred times....
Carmen Agra Deedy's brilliant storytelling combined with Pete Oswald's spirited illustrations make for a comforting tale of healing and true friendship.
"This well-crafted story is an excellent choice for those seeking books featuring conflict-resolution." ―Booklist, starred review
