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. ( )

Summary: A dog named Rocket learns to write a story with the encouragement of his teacher. He makes a new friend along the way.
Review: Young students would relate to this story. Rocket is learning new words, and gaining an understanding of the time and effort needed to write. The illustration is rendered in oil paint and colored pencil. These cute paintings would appeal to young children.

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. ( )
