I noticed that my son Michael was crying as he was reading a book. I immediately was worried. But, as I looked at the cover I saw it was by Sharon Creech, an author who will make you both laugh and cry ... even in the same chapter! Love That Dog is a sweet story told through poems about a boy named Jack, and his dislike of poetry. For everyone who groans when they hear "Whose woods these are I think I know...", then this book is for you. It's very short, but worth the listen.
