Rocket is a dog who lives to read and write. One day he decides he wants to write his own
story but doesn't know where to start. He meets other animals that help him along the
way like a yellow bird and a scared owl. He ends up writing a great book in the end. This
book will hopefully encouraged kids to read more and possibly write their own book. I enjoyed this book. ( )

I've needed this book and I didn't even know it! This is a great book to start a new writing unit with my kindergarten students. Students can see that Rocket goes through the same emotions they do as they start developing the identity as writers. What a great story! ( )

Adorable story about Rocket, a dog who collects words to write a story. With an encouraging teacher, the little yellow bird, and a willing audience, Owl, Rocket writes a story about what he knows and gains a new friend in the process.

This is story of Rocket the dog, and his attempt to write his first story. Rocket loves to collect words. He goes out everyday in search of new words. His teachers is a small, yellow bird, and together they amass a large collection of words. Rocket wants to write a story using all his words, but he doesn’t know where to begin. Yellow Bird gives him some good advice to get him started and he begins. After passing under the same tree every day, Rocket sees a nest with a baby owl in it. Thus he finds his main character for the story. He writes each day, sharing what he has written with owl, and a friendship develops.

A great use of characters to explain how to build a story. You must do your research, gather your information, analyze it, write about it, and revise it till the end. It doesn't seem so intimidating to children now.
