Cute story and quick listen by audiobook. #book12of2022
I got a real kick out of this line
I know that this isn‘t Book Related, but asking for prayers and thoughts for my family and I. We said goodbye to our Gypsy Rose today. Today we found out she had a fast developing cancer that spread in less than a year and incurable. 14 years she has been my shadow and reading buddy. Today we are grieving heavily for the loss of this sweet and gentle soul.
Why have I avoided this one for so long?
I loved watching Jack‘s confidence with poetry grow
I loved his responses to the poetry his teacher shared
I loved the inclusion of those poems at the end
This is my big furry child(he's usually a LOT furrier, he was shaved down in this picture for summer). His name is Taz aka Tazzy and aka (when he's being stubborn ,which is often lol) Tazmanian. He is a husky/chow. He'll be 7 years old May 28th. I've had him since he was a little fluffball at 8 weeks old.
I really don't know what I'd do without him. He's been there thru some really tough times. I love my boy ❤
#lae3414sp19 Love That Dog is a (P) children‘s book written by Sharon Creech. This book tells the story about a young student named Jack, who is learning to write poetry. The reader gets to follow along as Jack becomes more comfortable and more enamored with writing poetry. As the story progresses, Jack‘s poetry entries become more revealing and heartfelt, which leads to more than a few interesting moments/stories. This would be a great LC
Love That Dog by Sharon Creech (P, DCF Children‘s Book Award winner) is a favorite of mine that I‘ve kept since childhood and a must-read for everyone. It‘s especially important for students with low self-efficacy to read the story of someone they can relate to finding a creative outlet through writing and learning to embrace it. It‘s for this reason, among others, that I think this book would work best as a SR to promote discussion. #LAE3414sp19
I was so ready to breeze through this #kidlit reread last night before #homeschoolbookclub, and of course Sharon Creech snuck up on me again and made me tear up 😭 She‘s been doing that to me for 20+ years at this point, you‘d think I‘d expect it by now.

This is Westley! He's 4 years years old, we celebrate his birthday every January 1st (New Years baby).
He's a surprisingly neat dog who refuses to jump in mud muddles and sometimes he even neatly places his treats on my bookcase. He only likes women, we're not sure why. He always feels the need to inspect every shopping bag that enters the apartment. He loves giving kisses, I've never met a more affectionate dog.
These children‘s novels-in-verse were so good! The perfect quick reads for #24in48 while also hosting my parents. My son mostly just wants to play with Grandma, so I got a little bit of relaxing time. And Mom joined me for a bit on the giant “comfy chair” with her book (that I lent her!) during little man‘s nap too 😊📚❤️
Merry Christmas, littens! We are having a lovely morning watching Christmas movies, drinking coffee, and enjoying our fire. Last night we went to all the bonfires on the Mississippi River, a Cajun Christmas Eve tradition. So much fun! 🔥🔥🔥
5⭐️I took up this book after having about 5 kids every week the past semester ask me if it was in the library, and I sadly had to tell most of them it was checked out. I‘m so glad I read it to see what all the excitement was about- please if you have 10 minutes sit down and read it. It makes me so happy the Sharon Creech‘s Jack series makes my students love poetry so much. Would love to find more books like hers to add to our library.
Love that Dog by Sharon Creech is a P book that is great for IR. The story follows Jack, who hate poetry. He believes that only girls would read and write poetry. With the help of his teacher and dog, Sky, Jack discovers how much he likes poetry and the power of writing poetry. This would be a great story for students who are on the fence about poetry. #ucflae3414f17

And the tagged book is the real one that made me cry the most.
@Onlaughterandliteracy I forgot to ask...do you have Love That Dog on your list for literature circles? I've used this story with a variety of middle school students to get them excited about poetry. Kids consistently have loved this heartbreaking tale of a boy and his pup.
Love That Dog is a sensational poetry book by Sharon Creech. It's a book as told by Jack through poems from his point of view. Jack is shy and held back a bit but with the help of a dog, his teacher, and his imagination, he is able to find his own voice. I thoroughly enjoyed this book filled with a series of poems & Sharon Creech is an amazing author with a plethora of great books which you can find here www.sharoncreech.com/books #UCFLAE3414sp17
