Love That Dog
Audience: 4th Grade - 8th Grade
Jack's journal begins:
I don't want to
don't write poetry.
But as Jack learns through others' poetry, he finds that he can say so much in 'short lines' especially about that dog he loved.

My Dog May Be a Genius
Audience: Preschool - 4th Grade
Did you know that Jack Prelutsky's poems can be sung to well-known tunes? The only problem is figuring which one. As you read them out loud, you may notice that the beats sound familiar. My favorite poem can not be completely written here. Here is the shortened version of 'Call of the Long-winded Clumsy Owl.' Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooops!

My Kingdom for a Horse
Audience: 1st Grade - 5th Grade
Many people love horses. They love them on carousels, in books, in dreams, and in real time. This book is filled with poems about horses, by many different poets, who must have loved horses, too. Read this book to determine which kind of horse is your favorite. Will your horse be a pony that will nuzzle, nuzzle, nuzzle you? Or will it be a policeman's horse? Or will you see yours in the white clouds, or in the ocean waves? Use your imagination to create your own dream horse.

Audience: 1st Grade - 3rd Grade
A dog is too loud, a snake is too scary, a horse is too big. A guinea pig? Free verse poems tell us how Theodore the Guinea Pig got his name and how his new owner learns to care for him. Getting to know someone new takes time and patience, but friendship and trust are worth the effort.

Once I Ate a Pie
Audience: Preschool - 8th Grade
How can you not love a book that is, as the cover proclaims, 'Dog Approved?' Thirteen very different dogs describe their lives, trials, and triumphs. Lovely illustrations and different fonts contribute to making this a delightful book of poetry for dog lovers, and non-dog lovers, alike. Learn and laugh at their most private confessions as one canine after another admits secret, or not so secret, failings, such as 'sometimes I am bad,' 'I don't like other dogs,' or 'Once I ate a pie.'
