How Rocket Learned to Read by Tad Hills

Rocket just wants to take a nap, but the little bird is ready to start her lesson. Rocket tries to ignore little bird but soon he finds himself enthralled in the story little bird is reading outloud. So Rocket becomes bird's student and while learning the alphabet and spelling, he enjoys listening to stories...until he learns to read them himself.
How Rocket Learned to Read connects the power of read alouds to the magic of a teacher whose love of books becomes contagious. If your Rocket decides he would rather listen to you read than play with bones or take naps, you are sending him down the road to become a lifelong reader. The love for words starts way before we can read them.
