The Newbery Medal-winning author of Walk Two Moons, Sharon Creech , brings readers a story with enormous heart.

Love That Dog shows how one boy named Jack finds his voice with the help of a teacher, a pencil, some yellow paper, and of course, a dog. Written as a series of free-verse poems from Jack's point of view, and with classic poetry included in the back matter, this novel is perfect for kids and teachers, too.

Jack hates poetry. Only girls write it and every time he tries to, his brain feels empty. But his teacher, Ms. Stretchberry, won't stop giving her class poetry assignments--and Jack can't avoid them. But then something amazing happens. The more he writes, the more he learns that he does have something to say.

"I guess it does
look like a poem
when you see it
typed up
like that."

My 6 year old boy and I loved this story about a boy who at first thought that poetry is not "for boys". As his understanding of what poetry really is blooms, he develops a love for the genre and writes his own. I loved his positive story for boys that presented a love for reading, writing and learning!!
