Bedtime Story: How Rocket Learned to Read by Tad Hills

Synopsis: "Learn to read with this New York Times-bestselling picture book, starring an irresistible dog named Rocket and his teacher, a little yellow bird. Follow along as Rocket masters the alphabet, sounds out words, and finally . . . learns to read all on his own!

With a story that makes reading fun—and will even help listeners learn to read—this book is ideal for kindergarten classrooms and story hour or as a gift for that beginning reader. Fresh, charming art by Tad Hills, the New York Times bestselling author/illustrator of Duck & Goose, will make this a favorite."

My Review: I saw this book a while ago and finally managed to read it with Munchkin. This illustrations are adorable and the story is fantastic. It is a great book to share with young kids who are either just learning how to read or are wanting to learn how to read. It encouraged Munchkin to sound out words just like Rocket. It is a very cute book and one I am glad I have on my shelves.
My Rating: What better way to end Children's Book Week than with a book that encourages young ones to learn to read.  I enjoyed this one and I am sure many other families would too! I give it a rating of Four Paws!

Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
