Goodreads: This irresistible sequel to the New York Times bestselling How Rocket Learned to Read is “a perfect choice to inspire new readers and writers,” according to a starred review from Kirkus Reviews.
Rocket loves books and he wants to make his own, but he can’t think of a story. Encouraged by the little yellow bird to look closely at the world around him for inspiration, Rocket sets out on a journey. Along the way he discovers small details that he has never noticed before, a timid baby owl who becomes his friend, and an idea for a story. This book is sure to appeal to kids, parents, teachers, and librarians.
Ope’s Opinion: I love reading to my granddaughter. Seeing her be a little sponge is so much fun! This book kept her attention. She enjoyed the characters in the book.
I did not realize there was a previous book – How Rocket Learned to Read. I will have to go search that out for her.
Rating: Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several Kids I will share it with.
