Love That Dog by Sharon Creech
Love That Dog by Sharon Creech
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for all ages, July 12 2004
I bought this book for my 10 year old son about 6 months ago. I just grabbed it tonight to read during a quick break and fell in love. At 90+ pages written in prose it's a quick and easy read and wonderfully entertaining. I think there's a little bit of Jack (the main character) in all of us, wondering if what we are is good enough not only to share with the world but to fess up to ownership of it. His teacher, through gentle guidance, teaches him to believe in himself. I think this book is appropriate for people of any age and I plan on getting it for my 20 something sister for her birthday next month!

I've decided that Dave Meurer is one of my new favorite authors. The first book of his that I read was Boyhood Daze: An Incomplete Guide to Raising Boys. As a mother of 3 boys (4 if you count my husband) I was interested on hearing the perspective of another parent with nothing but testosterone in the house. That book was hilarious.
This book was equally entertaining but from a different perspective. I found that Dave delved more into the God/christianity world in this book and was definitely more vocal about his beliefs and his faith. Not necessarily a bad thing, but this book didn't have quite the laugh-factor that Boyhood Daze carried. This book tended to get more… Read more
