“I am desperately in love with Rocket, a sweet little doggy who did not know how wonderful reading could be until a very patient yellow bird teaches him. As it turns out, reading and spelling are not a distraction from play, but a joy to be experienced every day and in every aspect of life. This is a perfect book for those who love to read, for those who might not yet know how much they love to read, and for the patient teachers who are willing to show it to them.”
