Rita and Ralph's Rotten Day, by Carmen Agra Deedy, illustrated by Pete Oswald, is a picture book made for reading aloud. It's a story of reconciliation -- with lots of going down the hill and up the hill and down the hill and up the hill in a way that kids won't be able to resist playing along.

Happy Reading!

—Sondra Eklund
