Audiobook Review -- Hate That Cat, by Sharon Creech

When we drove to the Camp several weekends ago, Sherry brought some children's audiobooks for us to listen to on the way. One of them was Hate That Cat, by Sharon Creech. The story is told from the point of view of a boy named Jack, and the text is Jack's poetry for a grade school poetry class. You learn about Jack and his life through his poetry, and I found the story to be a great introduction to poetry for a child Sarah's age (7). It turned out that Hate That Cat was the sequel to another book, Love That Dog, which we will look for at the library next time we go. The author's website is at the link.
