I recently reread Love That Dog and liked it a little better the second time, but this one is incredible. I LOVE it! So I recommend it even if you thought that Love That Dog was just okay. Poignant, touching, a middle school English teacher's dream come true. I'm wanting to share this with ALL of my students and it won't even crush me if they hate it. I love it that much. ( )

I liked this book. It is written in a series of poems and tells a great story.

She pulled it off again! My 14 yo son loves poetry because of Silverstein, Poe, and Creech. I do recommend you read [b:Love That Dog|53498|Love That Dog|Sharon Creech|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1170425323s/53498.jpg|984829] first, though. ( )

This book is a follow-up to Love That Dog, in which a young student named Jack narrates in free verse what is happening at school and his love hate relationship with poetry. This time he talks about despising a cat, who he actually turns out to like (surprise, surprise!) in the end! This book is a great read aloud book, and a great book to read as an introduction to poetry. ( )
