Rocket Writes a Story by Tad Hills
This precious little puppy is back again and now he wants to do something with the words he knows.
Schwartz & Wade sent me this book for review (thank you). I had already reviewed How Rocket Learned to Read so I was anxious to get this one.
I am smitten with this puppy and his bird teacher. Mr. Hills' illustrations make me smile and his stories are sweet. He's very good at getting into the mind of a child and making his story easy to read and charming.
Rocket starts collecting words. His teacher helps him write them down and they decorate a tree with them. When the tree is full of words, Rocket decides he wants to write a story.
Watching the puppy face writer's block and struggle with his story will make you think of other authors you know. Rocket finds a new friend and writes his story about her.
This book is a marvelous picture book for children. It's one I could read to children again and again. If you have little ones in your life, you can't go wrong sharing Rocket's stories with them.
I highly recommend this children's series. And I'm collecting the books for me...
