Book Review – Love That Dog

Creech, Sharon - Love That DogJack doesn’t want to write poetry. Poetry is for girls. Poetry doesn’t make any sense. But as Miss Stretchberry introduces the class to new poems, Jack begins to see how simple ideas jotted down on a piece of paper can become something beautiful.

Love That Dog is just the kind of thing to get new writers excited about creative expression and experimentation. The entire story is told through a series of short poems by Jack for his school writing assignmentsa journal of mixed reviews, memories, new ideas, and budding interest.

As my first introduction to novel in verse, I truly felt like I was with Jack on his journey to discover a love for poetry. I highly recommend Love That Dog as an introduction to poetry for readers and writers of all ages!
