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.

Back cover copy

It's a whole new way of taking a walk!

When a package arrives from Grandma with a notebook for Tulip and a new leash for Rex, these two friends gallop to the park for a very special kind of walk--a word walk!

From tickly flutter to slightly scary shadow, all the wonderful words they find go right into the notebook.

But once they've collected all those lovely, lively words, what are they to do? Tulip has an idea. . . .

Alyssa Satin Capucilli and Sarah Massini have crafted another heartwarming tale featuring the characters readers first adored in Tulip Loves Rex, this time celebrating creativity, friendship, and the magical power of words to transform ordinary days into extraordinary stories.

Review quote

Praise for TULIP LOVES REX: "Whether Tulip is dancing on her bed (her legs just so, her arms arched gracefully in the air) or twirling through a tulip-studded park with Rex (who has some impressive Baryshnikov-like moves himself), she is the very picture of unadulterated joy."--Publishers Weekly
