Once I Ate a Pie by Patricia MacLachlan and Emily MacLachlan Charest and Illustrated by Katy Schneider

Reviewed by Miss Dewey at Orenda

FIVE paw prints. This book is wonderful. Never have I read such a good book that knows what dogs are really thinking. This book describes the world around us from the point of view of 13 dogs. You can learn why Mr. Beefy loves pies, Lucy loves her pillow, and why Pocket is huge. But my favorite poem is Three because it’s about whippets. I don’t care what you say…it’s NOT about greyhounds. It’s about WHIPPETS! So why would I recommend this book? Not only is it a book about dogs, but you learn about the dogs through individual poems. It’s a good way for families to introduce poetry to younger students because each poem is told as an individual story. It’s also good for older students, especially students reluctant to read poetry, because many students love dogs and these poems are very easy to interpret and understand. The pictures are nice too. They are clear enough to recognize while being grainy enough to leave some of the poem to your imagination.

I think this book is interesting. If you like dogs, you will like the story Bad Dog Marley by Jim Grogan.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
