A wonderful little bird entices a dog to learn to read by setting up a school and reading aloud a story. The illustrations are very pleasant with a nature's theme. The design is well laid out and easy to follow. This book is encouraging to new readers and gives good clues on how to learn to read. Parent's choice Silver Honor.

We read this a while back and enjoyed it. I was excited to find a copy at the thrift store today which I snagged for my little guy who likes Rocket a lot and is starting to recognize words! Great story! ( )

Book description
About a dog named Rocket and how he learns to read. He is a little against it at first, but a great story about bone hidden gets his attention. I thought this was fun read, the art was good. It would serve a great purpose in a classroom teaching kids how to read. Rocket is a great example of how a student learns and how they need to practice on their own.
