   Great Choice
I purchased this for my grandkids based on the reviews and that I have a dog named Rocket. This dog looks nothing like my dog, so taking that out of the equation, I give this book five stars. My grandkids ages 7 to 5 have asked me to read this repeatedly. They also liked the story of the story and the little bird that teaches Rocket to read. The illustrations are very nice and follow the story nicely. It is the perfect length for that one more story before bedtime or as part of a marathon story time on a rainy afternoon. I have read this numerous times and haven't gotten tired of it yet!
   Delightful for a 5 year old
A great word book. Great sight and sound. A five year olds challenge to follow the Rocket the dog through this book.
   Tad Hills nails this one. My daughter started reading ...
Hills nails it. My daughter started reading this when she was 3 and a year later, she still loves it and so do I.
   great book!
My daughter and I both love this book. She is beginning to learn to read. It's a cute story, said Blair.
   Cute book
An adorable puppy named Rocket learns to read in this heartwarming story that is very motivating for new readers. An adult will have to help with this one at first, but it's still a great book.
   5 year old's current favorite book and has been for a few months now
Hands down my 3.5 year old's current favorite book and has been for a few months now. He quotes part of the book to us all day long. Great illustrations and great characters, Mr. Cowger said. The book is very entertaining, and I recommend it to anyone. My son already has his alphabet down, but this would be great for a child that's still learning that as well as giving them an understanding of why we learn to read. The follow up book about writing a story is a bit over my son's head, but would be much more appropriate for most 5-6 year olds or a very advanced 4 year old. If you enjoy this book, I'd highly recommend the Step 1 reader's 100th day of school. Great for counting and really cute too.
   Lovely addition to a home library
Absolutely love this book. My reluctant kindergarten reader would at first interject the words "and" and "and" in the story. When she spelled W I N D or S U N or M U D, she would say the letters and sound them out. Their characters successfully infected my daughter with their enthusiasm for reading! She was able to become excited for Rocket and forget her own insecurity. The book proved to be a powerful tool in the courtroom. She can now read the entire book herself, but will often ask that I still read to her, for the story is both sweet and soothing. The illustrations are beautiful to boot!
   Encourages youngins to learn to read!
This is a fantastic story with soft, lovely illustrations, said Pauley. It encourages a love of reading at a very young age.
   Good little book about how to learn to read
I have read the Rocket books before and enjoyed the illustrations as well. This book does a fine job of showing both the child and the adult how reading works. Thus, it is not quite as fun as other Rocket books, but is very much a fine book.
   I have no idea.
I had this delivered to a great nephew for his 4th birthday. Because of the travel restrictions, I don't see him. I'm not sure when his mother will let me know, but she has a good reputation. He's flooded with all sorts of gifts.
