PROBLEM with title "How Rocket LEARNED to Read",
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: How Rocket Learnt to Read (Paperback)
This book was titled in the heading as "How Rocket Learned to Read". I read with an elementary school child who reads below grade level (with a group who provides reading therapy) and had this book recommended to me. I was very, very disappointed when I received this book because I can't even use it. It, for some reason, is a British version of the book -- "How Rocket LEARNT to Read" and "behavouir" and "practises" and "favourite" and other british spellings are prominent. I can't even use this book, because the child is learning these words, and "Learnt" is not the same as "Learned", obviously. I guess I'll have to give it to somebody who can read it aloud to their toddlers, and can edit the language. The story and pictures are very cute, but this is a huge disappointment (and a waste of $$) for me. I wish this book had been noted as a British version. Sorry I ordered it.

I am so glad you commented on this! I didn't even notice the book shows the british spelling in the title! I just assumed it was correct because the picture before I clicked it, as well as the title said Learned! I will have to find it somewhere else! You saved me the same mistake!

This seems to be an Amazon ordering issue, not the book/author. It's too bad they sent you the wrong one. I'm sure your star rating would be a 5 had you received the correct version. It's great!

Amazon is great about returns, why not just send it back and purchase the English version? I have returned a few items and had no problems. That's why I enjoy shopping with Amazon.
