Jack does not want to write poetry. But his teacher won’t let that be an excuse. Love That Dog is a collection of free verse poetry written in the form of Jack’s journal, where he gains confidence in his writing and comes to love poetry.

Since this story is told from the perspective of a young poet, it would be a perfect way to introduce our students to poetry.  Jack also mentions many other poems as he struggles to interpret them, which can be found at the end of the book for reference.
