Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheree Van Vreede
These poems detail the world of situations and experiences that are a part of school: i.e., tardiness, late homework, strange teachers, and the usual fights. Written with careful attention to the language and mindset of an adolescent, this collection captures the essence of what it means to grow up and be a student. Sara Holbrook doesn't paint perfect, idealized kids, but rather, uses real, everyday kids who are full of quirks. She finds a way to celebrate uniqueness and show kids just how "normal" these quirks are.

    The title poem, The Dog Ate My Homework could be my favorite
    I loved this book, almost every poem, sorry Anonymous. I saw Ms Holbrook a few years ago when she performed poems from the book. She didn't perform every one, but when I took a book home and read it, Sara's voice jumped out of the pages. I have purchased this book for friends and neighbors. it.

    This book is awesome

    My favorite poem is turn off the TV because it is so funny. I liked the time my character put the TV in the tree. I don¿t have any other favorite poem because the other poems were kind of dull. My character put the TV in the tree because the mom said to turn off the TV about a 100 times a day! Oh! I forgot to tell you to turn off that TV!!!!!!!!!!!!
