Rocket loves to play. He loves to chase leaves and chew sticks. Then one spring day he's interrupted by a little yellow bird who's determined to teach him how to read. At first Rocket is reluctant, but curiosity wins over and soon he's an eager student, learning the alphabet and sounding out words. Our irresistibly cute Rocket Doll is the perfect companion to bring along on reading adventures. From How Rocket Learned to Read and other books about Rocket, written and illustrated by Tad Hills. Safe for all ages, perfect for ages 3 to 6. Measures 9 inches tall. Surface wash only. First edition of the Rocket Doll had over-dyed black spots, making the fur feel rough. Subsequent manufacturing runs corrected this problem and now he's soft all over!
