Tulip and Rex Write a Story

by Alyssa Satin Capucilli (Author), Sarah Massini (Illustrator)

In Tulip and Rex Write a Story, the dance-loving duo from Tulip Loves Rex finds a new passion—collecting words and using them to tell a story. The writing theme makes this book a must for classroom libraries, parents looking for reading and writing activities to do at home, or anyone who loved Tad Hill’s Rocket Writes a Story or Kate Banks and Boris Kulikov’s Max’s Words.

Alyssa Satin Capucilli, beloved author of the bestselling Biscuit books, has written a sweet story perfect for preschool and early elementary school readers. Sarah Massini’s illustrations burst with texture, energy, and tenderness.

Tulip and Rex’s “word walk” and their subsequent imaginative play convey the subtle message that you don’t have to be able to read or write yet to love words and storytelling, and you don’t have to be behind a school desk to write a story—all you need is the world around you and a big imagination.
