    7. This book was really cute and shows great teamwork and how to figure things out and have fun. the dog is trying to collect 100 things and store them in a tree but when it comes to the 100th day, 5 acorns are missing and the squirrel says she ate them, then dog is sad but comes up with the idea of taking his friends because there are 5 of them including his new friend, squirrel. It was really cute and demonstrates great friendship and how you can figure out problems.


    8. I adored How Rocket Learned to Read, but since then his stories have missed the mark for me. I feel like this one is almost a story of friendship, but it doesn't go all the way. I guess this book would be applicable for the 100th day of Kindergarten or preschool. But don't you usually bring 100 of one thing?


    9. In this story, Rocket the dog needs 100 things so he puts in first pencils and a book, acorns, then he puts all his stuff in a tree. And then he finds red leaves and pinecones, and he finds sticks that look like numbers, heart-shaped stones, and 26 letters, and puts everything in a tree. And then spells letters, then he gets feathers from his friend owl. Then he counts all his stuff.


    10. Rocket is so adorable! Bella, the Squirrel, allows him to store a variety of items he collects for the 100th day of school but what happened to the five acorns he saved? Rocket learns not to save items someone likes to eat as he and his friends discover they have 100 items after all. This Ready to Read book is perfect for the first year of school when the 100th day is so popular.

    12. Young children will love Rocket. This time, Rocket has to make a collection of 100 things for school,, but when the big day arrives,he only has 95. What will he do? A cute tale of friendship and problem solving than the 100th day.


    13. Gotta love Rocket. We do. A fun read on the finding the quality of 100 through collecting items, adding them up and making a new friend. Sweet and easy to follow.


    14. I adore Rocket, and everything Tad Hills writs with him in it. This one is perfect for those grade levels who celebrate the 100th day of school.



    15. Rocket is, hands down, my favorite dog character. This step into reading book introduces us to a new character, Bella, and she becomes part of Rocket's 100 things for the 100th day of school.


    16. Great book! Especially Bella and the acorns! From experience I know that any books on the 100th day of school will be in high demand year after year and this is a very worthy addition.






    17. I love this book! All of Rocket's friends help him gather things for his 100th day of school, but when he is short 5 things he has a wonderful idea to complete his collection.


    18. Another oh-so-adorable Rocket book, with a cute storyline and a bit of a dilemma for rocket to solve. This one was a big hit with both my boys.
