I like the idea of a word tree as this is an excellent sounding board to build upon a story. I think readers can identify with “writers block” and the struggles and frustrations that go along with writing and reading. Great color through out the story and great illustrations to guide the readier.

LOVED this story!! Young writers would definitely identify with the struggles Rocket works through during each part of the writing process. My favorite development in the story is his inspiration, the shy little owl high in the tree, who becomes braver and braver and moves closer and closer to Rocket as she listens to her story. ( )

This book is a sequel to "How Rocket Learned to Read," which is amazing if haven't read already. Since Rocket the dog knows how to read now, he becomes curious to writing a book. Rocket finds inspiration from all the things around him and eventually writes a lovely story about an owl he meets. This book is awesome for young children who can get a good understanding of how to start writing on their own. ( )

Great book to use with Kinders to get them interested in writing. Rocket has a hard time at first, and kids who are learning to write will relate to him. Very nice and friendly illustrations as well.

This story is about a dog named Rocket that writes his own story with the help of a his teacher. The pictures were very simple, but also very cute and cool. I would use this book to children at a very young age since this is a very simple story line and has good pictures. ( )
