Meet Ralph! He loves all things that go, and he especially loves rocket ships. Oh—and he’s Katy Duck’s best dog pal, Get to know him in this Level 1 Ready-to-Read story for beginning readers.
“A rocket ship can take me up to the stars,” said Ralph.
“A rocket ship can take me to the moon!”
“A rocket ship can take me to planets far, far, away! Zip–zoom–whoosh!”
All Ralph wants is a rocket ship. So he asks his mom for one. “Too big,” she tells him. Ralph asks his dad. “Too tall,” he tells Ralph. What will Ralph do? With a little bit of imagination, a stack! stack!, a bang! bang!, and a tape, tape, tape, tape!, Ralph soon has his rocket ship. And it’s even big enough to fit his good pal Katy Duck, too!
