The star of How Rocket Learned to Read and Rocket Writes a Story helps readers share his appreciation for words in this large-format board book. Each spread showcases anywhere from four to 23 words. Most feature Rocket in outdoor settings, as Hills shares parts of canine anatomy (tail, paw, ear), actions (wag, dig, nap), and prepositions (Rocket appears “in” and “out” of a log). Two “chalkboard” spreads feature chalk drawings of an array of common objects, and Rocket’s yellow bird friend wraps things up with a collection of “small words that will come in handy,” including from, now, since, how, and then. Rocket continues to be a winning guide dog of the literary kind. Ages 2–5. (July)
