64. "Love That Dog" ~ Sharon Creech


My golden retriever, Nya, decided on a cuddle while I read this book. As she leaned all 70-plus pounds against my kidneys, I snuffled into tissues.

Do not read this while cuddling with pets. Especially dogs. Particularly "yellow" dogs.

This tender, sweet peek into the mind of a child is a fast read... fifteen minutes, tops. The book follows his journals - a one-sided conversation with his teacher - as he learns about poetry and expressing himself.

*Sniff.*
