Rocket is a dog who loves to play outside. One day, though, a bird shows up and decides that Rocket is his first student. Rocket stubbornly listens to the bird read a story and suddenly he wants to know more. The bird tells Rocket that he will learn to read, too. And does. The full page illustrations are softly colored and perfectly portray fall and winter. Some vignette illustrations are used as well when Rocket is by himself .

This would be the perfect beginning of the school year book for Kindergarten or 1st grade. The book also encourages students to be excited about school as Rocket waits through the winter for the bird to return and resume classes.
