School Library Journal - 05/01/2014 PreS-K—In this easy reader, Rocket and the little yellow bird love to collect words for their word tree. Rocket is good at collecting (and dropping) things to add to their tree, until he meets a boot he doesn't want to let go of. He is offered a stick, a ball, and a sock until Bird discovers what he'd like more than a boot—a book! After Rocket lets go of the boot, everyone settles down to enjoy the new book. The last page shows their word tree with all the new words on it—inspiration for a word tree of one's own? Rocket would like that. Simple, cartoon illustrations take children through the story and clearly show the plot. A good addition for emerging reader collections.—Melisa Bailey, Harford County Library System, MD - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
