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! ( )

Rocket, is a little dog who accidentally takes a nap under a a little birds sign that says, “class starts today.” When Rocket tells the little bird that he can’t read, the little bird enthusiastically tells the dog that she can be his teacher until the weather changes, and she does. While little bird leaves in the winter, Rocket continues to practice his new found skill to read, and when spring returns, he eagerly returns to his reading lessons with the little bird.

Chirp the bird helps Rocket learn how to read by teaching him letter by letter, i think this is a great book for beginners in pre kindergarten because every kid has a tough time with them and they have to learn how to spell so its something that can be used even in 1st grade I think. I think the bird having to leave for fall and winter left Rocket to his own new found knowledge to spell letters out in the snow while he waited. It is a heart warming 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.
