How Rocket Learned to Read by Tad Hills
Rocket is the fluffiest, most precious little dog I have seen. Mr. Hill's illustrations are so outstanding you would swear that you can feel Rocket's hair...
Schwartz & Wade Books published this book in July and it's available now in your local bookstore. My review copy is a high quality children's picturebook that will stand up to multiple readings without any problems.
If you have a hesitant or reluctant reader, this book is a great way to inspire them to read. If Rocket can learn the alphabet and how to read, surely they can! A little bird trains Rocket, who wasn't sure he really wanted to learn. But he did want to know how the story she read ended. So he learns the alphabet first and then moves into reading words.
This is a very cute story with delightful illustrations. It's for ages 3-7, and I'm sure they'll treasure this book.
I highly recommend this book for young readers. Buy a copy for your child and make reading fun.
