I have a feeling that hundreds if not thousands of first grade classes across America are about to adopt a dog and his name is Rocket. Rocket is living a full life when first we meet, chasing and chewing and napping. But, on this fall morning, he's about to meet a little yellow bird who will change his life. She is his self-appointed teacher and she has come into his life to celebrate the "gorgeous alphabet." If you look closely, you'll see Rocket's tail sticking out from behind the bush where he has gone to hide from this bird and her books. But, as she reads the "Buster" story, Rocket finds himself having fun and more importantly, wanting to know how the story ends. This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship between Rocket and the alphabet. He learns his letters and then the wonder of building words out of them. When the bird flies south for the winter, Rocket keeps practicing. Pretty soon he's spelling everything in sight! This quick-paced testimonial to the wonder of reading is a great first day of school book for the kids and for the teacher librarian! 40 pages Ages 4-7
