ABOUT THE STORY:
Rocket gets more than he bargains for when he heads to his favorite spot to take a nap one morning. A little bird unfurls a banner with all the letters from A to Z and chirps, "Ah, the wondrous, mighty, gorgeous alphabet, where it all begins," --and Rocket politely moves to a different favorite spot. Once the little bird starts reading though, Rocket can't help but be drawn into the story the bird is reading aloud. Young readers will instantly identify with Rocket, who is taught how to spell--and then read--by this enchanting little bird.
