Rocket Writes a Story
Schwartz & Wade, 2012 (2012)
Reviewed by Bob Walch
ello. My name is Rocket. I'm a dog and my best friend, a little yellow bird, has taught me to read. I love reading and paging through books. I really love the way books smell when I open them. I also love the words inside the books.
n this picture book my teacher, the yellow bird, tells me to use my nose to go out and '
sniff out some new words
'. What a splendid idea! Why don't you come along as I do that?
hen I find a new word I'll write it down on a piece of paper so I can show my teacher. Then after I have collected a lot of words, I am going to write my own story. You can watch me as I learn how to write a story. I'll need a character for my story. I'll also need to tell something about that character.
mm, this is turning out to be a hard job. But if you keep reading you'll see that I do find someone to write about and I actually write a cool story. After I finish my story perhaps you can write one of your own. If I can, I bet you can do so also! Give it a try!
f you are a teacher you might want to share my picture book with your class. This would be a good way to introduce young children to the idea of writing their own simple stories. Now there's a dog-gone good plan!
