img98697.jpgKnow a child just starting to learn to read? How about one who is having trouble with the process or is discouraged? I've got the perfect book for them.

Tad Hills' wonderful new picture book How Rocket Learned to Read is just right for beginning readers, struggling readers, and picture book fans of all ages.

Beautiful, vibrant and silly paintings fill every inch of the book. Tad did countless sketches of his dog (who just happens to be named Rocket) Tad Hills.JPGand you can see the results throughout the book. There's Rocket in the snow, in the mud and taking a nap (not for long!) He seems ready to leap off the page and into your lap and along with his wonder and excitement about learning to read.

Rocket sets just the right tone for starting school. If anyone asks where you heard about the book.... just tell them a little bird told you.

Tad is also the author and illustrator of the Duck and Goose series, books that are well worth checking out.
