Rocket is busy collecting 100 things to take to school on his 100th day, and he has the perfect place to keep them safe. That is, until Bella, a squirrel who loves acorns, gets involved.

Step 1 Readers feature big type and easy words. Rhymes and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story. For children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading.


Just like other Step 1, Step Into Reading books, this book came  with predictable patterns, simple words, big type, lots of repetition, and bright, colorful illustrations. This  book will charm young readers–and they can read it all by themselves!

It might seems really simple to gather 100 things, but in this book, Rocket’s found a little obstacle to reach his goal. When finally he forgave his friend’s mistake, he came up with great solutions to his problem. At the end, Rocket meet his goal with the help of his friends.

The book shows young readers how to forgive, how to reach their goal and how friendship could also bring solution through your problem.

My 4 yo son loves to read aloud this book with his younger brother sit next to him. They both love Rocket and his friends.
