Reading and Writing

ROCKET WRITES A STORY by Tad Hills (Schwartz and Wade, July 2012) is a worthy sequel to ROCKET LEARNS TO READ. Rocket and Yellow Bird still spend much time together each day. As Rocket learns new words, they are placed on a tree. Now, Rocket wants to write a story using some of these words. But what will he write about? Finding a new friend in a nest leads Rocket to just the right topic for his first book. How nice to connect for kids who reading feeds writing and how writers search for ideas. <167>

Yoko and her mother read their three children's books in Japanese so often that Yoko has them memorized. But she only has three leaves in the reading tree and her classmates have more. How can she not get left behind? In YOKO LEARNS TO READ by Rosemary Wells (Disney Hyperion 2012), Yoko and her mother find help from a terrific librarian and an understanding teacher. <168>
