When he finds a shining star, it doesn't bother him when his friends try to tell him it's just a hubcap. Undaunted, Zane uses his finds to create a secret project that piques his friends' curiosity. After watching him ramble around the neighborhood, finding magic in the ordinary, his friends are eventually drawn into his imaginative game. Through the book's art, attentive readers will see that Zane is using his finds to create a pirate ship, and once his friends realize what he's up to, even the most skeptical realists join the fun and sail the afternoon away. Zane's imagination sees the cowpoke's lasso in a piece of vine, the pirate's golden ring in an old pop top, and many other treasures that have been stolen from today's children by electronic entertainment. Rambling enforces the joy of imaginative play....

One Day I Went Rambling Reviews
One Day I Went Rambling by Kelly Bennett and Illustrated by Terri Murphy is a fantastic story about movement, rambling, and using your imagination. Taking a spin off that old adage, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, Zane goes on a good old fashioned ramble, collecting all sorts of found objects and seeing their bigger potential, turning them into magic rings and shining stars. His enthusiasm garners interest from his friends until all of the kids are rambling and being inventive. This is a great story that encourages getting up off the couch, away from the computer and using your imagination. I could also see this being a good read aloud when teachers are doing upcycle or found object projects.
Cute picture book. Story about a boy who rambles the neighborhood finding old discarded items and finds treasure in other's trash.
Looking for Found Fun? Terri Murphy's illustrations are delightful--and she's added a surprise hitchhiker to each spread--a chameleon! This is definitely for the older picture book crowd. Say 6 and up. And the book is more accessible if you first discuss seeing with our Imaginatative Eye--finding figures, faces, buildings, animals in cloud formations; images in rock strata; wondrous lands just beyond the horizon. The last scene invites readers to use their Imaginative Eyes to extend the story to Zane's next Ramble!Also good to open discussions about teasing & peer pressure. A Teaching Guide, including instructions for Recycled Band Instruments, Activity Sheets for pre-school and up, and more ways to extend the Ramble are posted on the author website: www.kellybennett.com (click on Activities tab)
Children will enjoy reading this book becuase it offers great illuistrations to show the children's "rambling" adventures. Children love to explore and use their imagination during play, so this book offers many exciting, new ways for them to have an adventure with friends.
This author recently came to my son's school. She told us a little about how she came about in her writing process and I found it very interesting. Awesome lady!
