love that dog

An excellent kid’s book that is both challenging and original. The narrator is a young boy encouraged to write poetry in the classroom. After discovering several poems he likes by Williams, Frost, and others, he reluctantly gives it a shot. He finally creates a poem about his dog modeled after Walter Dean Myers’ “Love That Boy.” The whole book is in verse, broken up by days of the school year. Read it if you love poetry and/or dogs, then pass it on to a kid.
