The story is wonderful and relatable. The illustrations are bright, clear, and engaging. I highly recommend this book and it's companion, Rocket Learns to Read.

Though the book has a well-developed plot, it's not too much for little ones to follow our little one has loved this since she was about 2. This story, and the one before it, are great ways to get little ones excited about the idea of reading, and there are many opportunities to practice reading small words and especially in this one sight words. The characters are very lovable and sweet, the illustrations are beautiful, and it has excellent shelf life for older kids to continue to enjoy.

Rocket Learns to Read is one of our fav stories that we go back to again and again. Great way to reinforce the alphabet and their sounds. This is the continuation of Rocket, the adorable dog to continue his learning and applying his alphabet and sounds to learn to read in this story.

He learns from the cute yellow bird who is persistent and lures him in with stories about a dog who loses his bone. The story and illustrations are adorable.
Great idea for a gift for a child, too. I was amazed when my son came home from kindergarten with an assignment to make a folder with pictures pasted to it and the words for those pictures, underneath. It was exactly what this dog, Rocket, does. In both cases, they use it to learn to write a story about the things around them and the things they love. I ended up giving my son's teacher my copy since she can use it year after year.

Need to now buy my own! Have not read the other books in this series - yet. This is the second book in the Rocket picture book story. I highly recommend both of them. The plot for Rocket Writes a Story is based on early education writing concepts and kids would really enjoy it. It coincides with the early creative writing lessons of elementary schools and would make a great story base for writing lessons for a K-2 teacher.
I bought one for our house and for my nephew turning 6 who also received at a past birthday How Rocket Learned to Read. I bought this book for my daughter who is a first grade teacher. She will be using this book as a mentor book to teach writing. See all reviews.
