Love That Dog

Love That Dog - Sharon Creech Clever novel written in verse. Tells an engaging story of a young boy who doesn't like poetry. He doesn't understand the genre and thinks it's only for girls. His teacher opens his eyes to the world of poetry and figurative language. He learns to love it and becomes a poet himself without even realizing it. This book is great for introducing poetry to intermediate and middle grade students.
