I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! I have another one of Sharon Creech’s book’s “Walk Two Moons” and I’m definetly going to look forward to reading it. That and “Hate That Cat”. I love the poetry in this book. It’s one of my favorite books ever!
Love That Dog is about a boy named Jack who’s teacher, Mrs. Strechberry, makes him start like a poetry journal. This book is composed of the poems Jack wrote about what he was going through and his thoughts at the time. One of the main focus points in the book is that his dog, Sky, dies in a car accident. It is very sad and emotional, what Jack writes about Sky. Another little point later in the book, is how much he wants his favorite author, Walter Dean Myers, to come and read some poems at his school.
