Description

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 sturdy big board book for new readers. Preschoolers watch the little yellow bird teach Rocket simple words, like n-e-s-t and m-u-d. And beginning readers will love practicing their new literacy skills alongside another brand-new reader—Rocket! The larger size of this edition makes it perfect for sharing during storytime or lap time.

Praise For Rocket's Mighty Words

School Library Journal, October 2013:
"The signature oil and colored pencil illustrations are colorful and charming, and the message that books and words are important is certainly a worthy one. More than 100 words/concepts are identified for little ones to learn."
