This book was delightful and has the potential of teaching children new words and possibly could inspire children to want to write their own story like Rocket did. I liked the realistic frustrations that Rocket went through when he couldn’t think of what to write as well. The oil paint illustrations were very nice and Rocket’s fur looked so soft! Rocket’s teacher, the “little yellow bird” was very cute and encouraging to Rocket. This book teaches kids that the more they read and learn new words, the more they can write anything they want. ( )

Stories can create friendships and help you get to know things that you did not know before. Rocket had never heard of the word owl and his story about his new friend, made her less shy and she finally came down from her tree so she could hear his story. ( )

This is a sweet story of Rocket and his teacher, the little yellow bird. Rocket loved to read but now he was interested in writing also. The story follows Rocket on his adventure of looking for new words, discovering his surroundings, and working through writer's block.

Rocket loves books. Rocket goes off to explore to find new words. Little yellow bird helps him spell words and they hang them on their word tree. An idea is born, Rocket decides to write a story but has trouble putting words on paper. Rocket goes in search of inspiration. Rockets writes a story about Owl and visited her to know more and to read his story to her. Rocket and Owl found a friend in each other.
