Not everyone understands poetry. It can make sense some of the time, but quite often, poems are just confusing. This is what one young boy things as he's learning about poetry in school. It isn't long until he sees things happening in poems that sound a lot like his life. In fact, there are a lot of poems that he really likes! What's really cool about this book is that it's written like a book of poems, and it still tells the story of this boy. The poems makes sense and you'll end up liking poetry a little bit yourself if you give it a try. The boy did. He even wrote a poem that will show you what poetry is all about. Love That Dog by Sharon Creech is more than just poetry - it's life. For 5th grades and up.
