This past week, author and illustrator Tad Hills demonstrated his talent for writing and drawing to our preschoolers, first, second and third graders, oh . . . and teachers, too, at a morning school assembly. Seated in front of an easel and Tad's dog Rocket, everyone was enchanted with his stories and drawing techniques.
The basis for How Rocket Learned to Read, his most recent book, is his beloved dog Rocket, who sat dutifully by as kids asked a gazillion questions. Check out his books, which include those show above.
