Rocket, the beloved dog from the New York Times bestselling picture books How Rocket Learned to Read and Rocket Writes a Story, is back in a Step 1 leveled reader.

Rocket is ready to find new words for his word tree with his teacher, the little yellow bird. He finds a leaf, a hat, and a star . . . but when he finds a red boot, he doesn’t want to let go. What will make Rocket drop it?

With predictable patterns, simple words, lots of repetition, and bright, colorful illustrations, this Rocket book will charm young readers—and they can read it all by themselves!

Step 1 Readers feature big type and easy words. Rhymes and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story. For children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading.

A few weeks ago I was working at the Book Fair at my Kindergartener son's school.  I had to buy this book so that I could justify buying the little Rocket dog that went with it.  This book (and Rocket) are adorable.  My son can read this book pretty easily, so I didn't buy it as a challenge for him.  I bought it because it is a fun book to read over and over again.  And did I mention how adorable that Rocket dog is?

Really good book, my daughter dove right into it & couldn't stop reading. Was very confident with how easy she knew the words.
