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. Love....love...love it.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!
