Love that Dog

Author: Sharon Creech

Year: 2001

Genre: Poetry (Middle grade)

The scoop:

It’s seldom you find a dog-centric book that isn’t sad, and Love that Dog is no exception. Although, perhaps sad is too strong in this case. Love that Dog is more poignant and bittersweet than sad. That’s because, on the surface, this isn’t a book about a dog, but a book about a kid named Jack, who thinks he hates poetry. What he discovers, however, is that poetry isn’t just for girls–and that in fact, he’s quite good at it. Oh yeah. And that poetry, like all art, can help with processing deep emotion…and that’s where Jack’s dog comes in.
