My son asked to read these books nearly every day of kindergarten - and the story and illustrations are cute enough that we didn't mind. That's saying a lot! Rocket is a very cute dog, and his friendship with the little bird who teaches him to read is adorable. Highly recommend these books for young readers!
I adore these books. I've only read "Rocket Learns To Write" but my kindergarteners listened the whole time and it helped them write their own stories because the tree was relatable to the word wall in my classroom. I bought the Learning Box because I knew how much I liked "Rocket Learns To Write" and figured I would like the other one as well; I was right.
My 1st Graders loved these stories about Rocket learning to read and to write. They love Rocket and the little yellow bird who teaches him. The kids related to learning these skills themselves and would verbally refer to Rocket for a number of days after our reading.
