Prickly People

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

How Ralph learns to deal with his grandfather, who is definitely a prickly person, is a great lesson in not letting others' faults dictate who you are and how you'll act. In the end Ralph learns to appreciate and love his grandfather, even with all his quirks. Note: You might need to tone down some of Grandfather's language as you read aloud.
