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, 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, Miss 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.»

    Jack es un niño que está aprendiendo de poesía y cómo escribirla: al principio no tiene muchas ideas pero cuando empieza a escribir sobre su perro Sky las cosas se le facilitan.

    La poesía vista desde los ojos de un niño que la va descubriendo y se va maravillando con las posibilidades que encierra.

    I don’t have any pets
    so I can’t write about one
    and especially
    I can’t write
    a POEM
    about one.
    Ximena Peñahas quoted2 years ago
    I don’t want to
    because boys
    don’t write poetry.
    Girls do.
    Isabel Jazmín Angeleshas quoted2 years ago
    When they’re small
    like that
    you can read
    a whole bunch
    in a short time
    and then in your head
    are all the pictures
    of all the small things
    from all the small poems
