The Poet’s Dog

the-poets-dogWritten by Patricia MacLachlan


This isn’t a book just for children. It is a book for humanity. It has warmth, tenderness, and hope, all masterfully written page after page. The cycle of love, loss, sadness, acceptance, and then peace is told by Teddy, the poet’s dog. MacLachlan gives Teddy a voice that speaks to the heart. The Poet’s Dog is a beautiful story. Now I must go and give my dog Sophie some love.
