Why Read?: Book Club

Thoughts: Normally, I shy away from books about dogs (especially ones for MG), but my book club was reading this, so I had to. I am glad I did. There was a sad part, but unlike some children's classics, this did have (SPOILER ALERT!) a happy ending. DiCamillo has written a heart-filled story about a lonely little girl, her stay dog, and the meaning of friendship.
