Rick The Rock of Room 214 by Julie Falatko and Ruth Chan

Have you ever wanted to be somewhere else?

The Picture Book of the Week is Rick The Rock Of Room 214, written by Julie Falatko and illustrated by Ruth Chan.

About the Book:

Rick is a rock who sits in on a classroom. He is content sitting on the shelf. It is all he knows. One day the classroom teacher teaches a lesson about rocks and all the exciting things rocks do in the wild. Rick is no longer content to sit on a shelf in a classroom. He wants to be outside, having adventures on cliffs and in volcanoes. He comes up with a plan and finally makes it outside, but what does he find? Will he find adventure?

Watch the author, Julie Falatko, read the story aloud:

Writing Exercise for kids:

Rick wants to go on and adventure. Think about an adventure you would like to go on. Pretend you are actually on that adventure and write a postcard to your family telling them how it is going.
