Hey, poets and readers. Quick post this week.
I am working on a guest article for the website Reading Rockets. It’s going to be all about books … and dogs.
Of course, I have to include a few dog poems.
By Laura Shovan
Your mat rolls out
like a big pink tongue.
I wag and strrretch.
Come on! Come on!
It’s yoga time.
Let’s greet the sun.
Human and dog,
we breathe as one.
Want more yoga poems for kids? Check out Janet Wong’s TWIST: YOGA POEMS. Available on Bookshop.Org.
Is it dog poems you need? My favorite is STELLA, UNLEASHED: NOTES FROM THE DOGHOUSE, by Linda Ashman. This book is out of print, but you can find it at online retailers.
I am creating a list of middle grade books where the protagonist has a best furry friend, especially of the dog variety. Got a recommendation? Leave it in the comments.
