Love That Dog
Jack doesn't care much for poetry, writing it or reading it. With the prodding of his teacher, though, he begins to write poems of his own — about a mysterious blue car, about a lovable dog. Slowly, he realizes that his brain isn't "empty" and that he can write poems.
We are enjoying the book in class this year so I won't give away the ending! You must read it to find out what Jack has learned by the end of the book.
