April Poetry Madness Winner Is ...

And the winner is ... Love that Dog (2001) by Sharon Creech!

As part of our poetry unit we read Love that Dog as a class, sharing and discussing the same poems as Jack and his classmates, as well as trying them out for ourselves. This meant that Love that Dog holds a special place in the hearts of many of my students. (Read a full review including how I use this book to teach poetry.)

Here are a few of their comments and thoughts about why they voted for Love that Dog:

  • "Because it was a great book and enjoyable to read."
  • "It is awesome!"
  • "I picked this book because it is about dogs."
  • "Even though it was sad, this is the better book."
  • "I think it is a good example of how you can tell a story with a poem."

Thanks so much to everyone who joined in and voted!
