(early e-ARC preview from Edelweiss)

We LOVE Rocket at our school ... both of the first two.
This one continues the tradition of super cute illustrations.

I was a little disappointed as I looked over the preview but that is probably because I didn't read the description closely before I requested it. I just saw ROCKET and I thought "Oh, I definitely need to see this!"

I like the board book format. If it's meant to be a "reference" book so that little ones flip back and forth figuring out how to sp
To know something's true name is to have power over it, mystics have long believed. Ancient beings held their true names secret, fearfully protecting themselves from terrible fates.

Naming something drags it from the realm of the unknown to the known. You're then easily able to break it down, pigeonhole it, tame it, and harness it for your own ends.

In this tome, Rocket shares all of his words of power. Learn mastery over the igloo, ax, mug, and pumpkin.

Rocket's Mighty Words” by Tad Hills is a new addition to his Rocket series books made for young readers in order to help them to learn new words.

This is an oversize board book made in known Tad Hills’s style with nice pictures full of colors.
For those unfamiliar with the series, here there’s no story inside, instead this book is visual dictionary, collection of words that previously appeared in Rocket’s other stories.

Young reader can find all the words on top of the picture or next it to, in tha
Cute book!! All of my kids got a free book from the library summer reading program, this was one of them!!! So thankful, gotta love the library!
The format of this one didn't really work that well for me but this would be nice for a new reader to flip through at their own pace.
Love the pictures of Rocket, but this is just vocabulary words and not a story. Some of the chalkboard illustrations are indistinct.
Learn many words together and also some "small" words that are needed.

Perfect little book for my two year old!
If you like Rocket's other books you'll enjoy this one, however, it's important to note that there isn't a story in this book. It's simply a collection of words that have appeared in Rocket's other stories. All of the words are either on top of the illustrations they name, or next to the pictures would could make learning new words easier for early readers who are visual learners.
Some pages have too many images for younger kids.
Part 1 or 3. This book introduces the kids to new words and pictures that will be used in the next two books. The pictures are good and these books would be great to use with beginner readers and writers.
Join Rocket, an adorable puppy who loves to read, and learn 100 first words. The pictures are easy to identify and the font easily legible. Perfect for brand new readers or younger ESL students.
Whoo-hoo - twice in one day an oversize board book!! In the traditional style of Tad Hills this book has nice soft colorful illustrations. Children learning words can browse this cute book.
A Rocket that even the youngest of readers can enjoy! Teach your preschooler basic words with Rocket! I love this series. (I saw an ARC of this book through Edelweiss.)

“Whenever I picture myself [as a child],” says Tad Hills, “I am doing art. I spent a lot of time on my own making things, drawing, and painting.” Hills was not consciously trying to become an artist, rather his motives were innocent and pure. “I liked making things,” he says.

As a graduate of Skidmore College in New York with a degree in art, Hills describes himself as the ultimate freelancer. He’s
