Hate that Cat a Novel by Sharon Creech

Publisher:  Scholastic,
Pages:  153
Source:  My shelves
Genre:  Middle Grades Poetry

Sharon Creech has inspired me to use this book this next year.  I will read it aloud to my students.  It demonstrates  poetry in its uniqueness.  It lets every child know that there is no right or wrong way to write poetry.  It encourages students to write.  All of this is done through the character of Jack and his teacher Miss Stretchberry.  This was a very quick and easy book of verse.  I loved the "Books on the Class Poetry Shelf" in the back of the book.  It gave me some ideas to add to my own limited poetry shelf.  This is a definite read as is her book "Love that Dog".
