My favorite field trip of the year
How Rocket Learned to Read by Tad Hills, which I happen to agree is a wonderful book and so do the thousands of kids who selected the finalists for the Children's Choice Book Awards. It's a finalist in the Kindergarten-2nd Grade Book of the Year category. The little yellow bird you see on the cover teaches Rocket to read and it's hard to resist cheering for Rocket when he gets the job done. It's easy to imagine kindergartners sounding out the words along with Rocket and delighting in their own accomplishments.
Don't forget to encourage the child in your life to vote here for their favorite books of the year in the Children's Choice Book Awards.
