In Chris Raschka's picture books, language is always important - and usually just the top layer of the story. Beneath what is said, other dramas are taking place. Such is the case with 'Ring! Yo?' For, until the end, when both friends are shown, young listeners will have the chance to fill in for themselves half of the phone conversation. Of course, the body language of the boy is eloquent. His friend is peeved, feels rejected. And so this afternoon he'll be playing with someone else. Children and inventive grown-ups will eagerly follow.

User Review  - Mackenzie Raatz - Goodreads

I think this book is a wonderful read aloud that captivates students attention and allows them to predict the ending. It leaves for an open ended discussion afterwards about what the conversation was about. I can incorporate an activity for students to write an ending to the book! Read full review
