Rated 4 out of 5 by from YOUR GOING TO LOVE THAT DOG! YOU'LL LOVE IT THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR TEACHERS I just finished reading this book (a very quick read). It is a super book to use when introducing poetry to children. Having the poems included in the back is a great added touch. The kids can read the poems and then read and understand the reaction of Jack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, with some extra points I am in grade five, and I read this book with my class. At first it was kind of strange because I had never read a book like it before. I really enjoyed this book. And anybody who's reading this right now, should read it. My teacher said also, that I should read it three times. I didn't want to. But now after reading it three times, you understand the point of the book and what it's ( or Sharon Creech) is trying to tell you.
