What’s It About?

Meet Rocket and Groot!

They are BEST friends.

Groot was big and now he is small.

Rocket is tough and strong.

Together, they guard the galaxy!

Take a peek to meet Rocket and Groot in this short book read aloud. 

Why Is It So Good?

An early read for toddlers between the ages of 3 and 5 years helps you learn all sorts of beginner reading tools like …

  • Sight words (is, a, the)
  • Word repetition
  • Short sentences with larger font

Your child meets the Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket and Groot, in this easy to follow short read aloud.

The story is excellent for beginner readers (especially for those who have shorter attention spans).

Now let’s dive into the storybook activity, Draw the Words!

Superhero Read Aloud Storybook Activity

The activity is to draw the words.superhero-read-aloud-meet-rocket-and-groot

Using the letter featured on the left side  (R, A, G, A, B, G), then spell the word.

Next, draw the word in the box beside it.

You spell and write out the sentence, “Rocket And Groot Are Best Friends”.

Your child is introduced to six new words (including two beginner sight words: and, are) along with building a sentence.

Sight words allow our kiddos to learn to read (they are repetitious words you see ALL the time). 🙂

Now that your child has just learned a new sentence and a couple sight words, let’s view your BONUS “Trace the Letters” activity.

We will go over why this is a GREAT learning tool.

Superhero Read Aloud BONUS Activity!

Early on, when a child learns to write by hand it takes a TON of time and practice.

This activity was created to help your kiddo gain control over their fine motor skills (like their hand, finger, and arm movements) that are necessary to form words.superhero-read-aloud-meet-rocket-and-groot

Tracing is a wonderful way to help your child practice their writing skills.

Then, when you add a topic they are interested in (like the Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy) learning just became FUN.

Your child gets to trace and write the uppercase letters “ROCKET GROOT”.

When you add tracing to your little one’s drawing time it encourages a few things …

  • Refines pre-writing skills
  • Provides a strong foundation for drawing and emerging writing
  • Is a confidence booster

Each night we met a different superhero before he went to bed.

  1. The wording is simple and easy to follow along which helped my son to gain confidence in his reading skills (within a short period of time he was reading the pages on his own to me)!
  2. These stories are quick reads taking you a few minutes to do.

What Reviewers are Sharing …

Overall, the global ratings and reviews are extremely high.

The majority of customers love this book set and here are the common reasons why …superhero-read-aloud-meet-ant-man

  • Simple sentences
  • Kids love it
  • Helps reluctant readers
  • Great for beginner readers
  • Makes a nice gift

Something to keep in mind is the books are smaller in size with dimensions 5.75 x 1.75 x 6.25 inches.

Some customers were surprised about this which is why I’m mentioning it.

The books are designed to fit the size of a child’s hand which is why they are smaller.

I took a pic of my six year old son holding the Ant-Man book to the right (just to give you an idea of the size). 🙂

Final Verdict

This book series is an excellent reading tool for early readers (especially for those who have shorter attention spans).

It is the perfect read aloud for the toddler who is a superhero fan or who loves the Guardians of the Galaxy!
