The Children’s Department is proud to announce that there are now two copies of How Rocket Learned to Read by Tad Hills on the shelf and ready to be checked out!
In Tad Hills’ new story, How Rocket Learned to Read, Hills creates a cute story of the joys of reading. Rocket, a sweet little black and white puppy, loved to play. He loved to chase leave and chew sticks. He loved to listen to the birds sing. Then one day, a little yellow bird landed on Rocket’s head and proclaimed him to be her first student. Though he initially tries to resist learning, the little yellow bird is determined to teach Rocket the wonderful world of reading.
Author and illustrator Tad Hills, who created the delightful Duck and Goose, is sure to captivate children with his beautiful oil and colored pencil illustrations and quirky facial expressions. This enchanting story will surely help your little one overcome any fears that they might have about reading or even starting school.
