PICTURE BOOK: Rocket Writes a Story by Tad Hills

Rocket Writes a Story

A sequel to Rocket Learns to Read, and just as precious as the first!

Rocket and his teacher, the little yellow bird, are still working on reading. Rocket discovers new words every day and hangs them on a tree. One day he decides he is going to write a story with some of his new words. But writing a story is hard - Rocket has a hard time coming up with an idea. Once he has an idea, there are days when the writing goes well and days when it does not. Then Rocket makes a new friend when he shares his story with an owl who lives in the tree that inspired the story.

The illustrations are absolutely delightful. I just want to hug Rocket! This will be a great story to share with my writing club students. I may even share it with all of my students for the start of school this year.

Rocket is a treasure!
