Love That Dog

Have you ever had an interest in poetry? Well this is a really good poetry book by Sharon Creech called Love That Dog. It is about a boy who wants nothing to do with poetry until his teacher tells him how to write poetry and he fell in love with it. This book is written in poem form but tells a story as well. WARNING! This book has a really sad part, but the rest of the book is all fun and games. The main character's name is Jack, but without his dead dog Sky or Jack's teacher, his life would be 100 times different. I think you should read this book for the following reasons, for pleasure, if you want a short read, and you want to learn a thing or two about poetry. I hope you will check out Love That Dog now that you have read my review.
