Celebrate 10 years of Rocket with this first book in the New York Times bestselling series about an adorable dog named Rocket who learns to read with help from a little yellow bird. 

In this memorable story, irresistible Rocket--a sweet, thoughtful pup who is curious about the world around him--meets a tiny yellow bird with a storybook and a love for words. Initially reluctant to learn, Rocket gets some help from his patient new teacher. And eventually, through a lot of hard work, Rocket becomes a tail-wagging, enthusiastic student who sings out the sounds of each letter in the alphabet, practices how to sound words out, and eventually, learns how to read!
