Picture book of the Week: Dogku
It is haiku week in the library. We have been invited to participate in a haiku-writing contest, so many of the classes are being introduced to this lovely art form with Andrew Clements' Dogku. The very same Andrew Clements who writes the humorous chapter books. This is the story of stray dog, Mooch, who finds a family to adopt him. The story is told in haikus, but students don't have any trouble following the plot. If you are looking for an introduction to poetry or haikus, check this one out!
