I didn't know I would be reviewing this book today. I am still reading the grown-up book that I was reading last week. I'm getting close to done, but not close enough. I happened to get my hands on a kids' book called Love That Dog by Sharon Creech. I read it in an hour. I love it!
Love That Dog is written in poem form, appropriate for April, National Poetry Month. This book is very readable and endearing. A young boy is writing poems in school; his poems become this book. Both you and your 8-12 year old will love this book. I give it five stars out of five.
