Booktalk #1

"For you, my dear, I will always be there.
I'll be in your dreams.
Curled up on your chair.
Through the dark night,
you need not be scared.
For you, only you,
I will always be there."

Do you have a dog?  There is something so special about a dog.  They are so loyal and so lovable.  If you are a dog lover, you will surely identify with these poems.

Booktalk #2

Dogs and poetry go perfectly together!  In Good Dog, a Westie complains about work yet to be done; a Springer Spaniel expresses love and a Pekingese apologizes to her person. Thirteen additional dogs make their own views heard poetically. Lovely oil portraits capture each dog’s personality. This book, as well as the dogs, can be considered “Best in Show”.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2007-2008)
