      Twenty-nine poems told from the point of view of Stella, a rambunctious but loving canine, provide a dog's eye view on life. Once the right family finds Stella and takes her home from the animal shelter, they spend time getting to know her and her habits and choosing the perfect name. Young readers will enjoy her take on fame, sleeping, and the other animals in the house as well as the trouble she gets into. "Acrobat Cat" reminds me of what my dog Spirit must think as she watches my felines scam [...]

      This is a quaint collection of poems all written from a dog's point of view. While I would not personally classify the poems as literary masterpieces, they are all very cute. The pictures are great and well done, with vivid colors. This is a must have for any household that has a dog (perhaps even if you do not have children) for the pure enjoyment of it. For my household, specifically, my two year old daughter LOVES this one (we have 3 dogs in my house). It would also be a good learn-to-read bo [...]

      I am from dog people and I married someone who is not. Still, he tolerates our dogs (two, to his dismay) and once in awhile he says something like he's glad the kids have grown up with dogs or that he feels good knowing the dogs are guarding the house and I think, ha! We will win him over yet. Dog people know that all the problems of dogs - the barking, the occasional accident on the carpet, the "incidents" that later make great stories (the stolen chicken dinner sort of thing), the vet bills, a [...]

      Have you ever wondered what your canine companion thinks about during the day? What she would say if she could talk? In her own words, Stella relates her thoughts and opinions. She’s eloquent, articulate, and at times a little naughty.What I thought: How I admire Stella’s eloquence and poetic language! Ashman delights readers with 29 poems from Stella’s point-of-view. My favorites are “The Drama Queen” and “Tea Time.” I also enjoyed “Someone for Each of Us” which reminds me of [...]

      This is a great example of poetry to read aloud to preschool children. All of the poems are from Stella the dog's point of view, from choosing her family at the pound to her sleeping requirements ending with a poem about all of the services our dogs provide for us. The poems are divided into topics such as "Meet my Family", "Around the House" and, my favorite, "Trouble!" The illustrations are bright and fun which compliment the humor of the book. Highly recommended!!!

      The life of a dog as told by one adopted from the pound. Adjectives are plentiful in this book and should be modeled to show how they can effect the feeling the author is casting. The author categorizes the book by events and descriptions of the family, great for a sequencing lesson. This idea could be broken down so that students could write a brief description of a portion of an important event in the past year, then add to it as the school year progresses.

      This is a book full of poems told from the point of view of the family dog Stella. The poems are simple and easy to follow and would be perfect for a read aloud. I would definitely use this in a poetry unit, teaching children how to write simple poetry, and a book in my class library or studnets to read for pleasure. The illustrations also are great for keeping the students attention and the appeal could be even greater if we have a class pet or students have a pet at home.

      Cute illustrations - too busy though. Probably a better book for a child to explore on a parent's lap.

      Poetry from a dog's perspective, language and concepts more complex than I expected from the cover

    13. Liz B on said:

      This is a delightful book about a dog named Stella. The book contains different poems all about dogs, Stella, and why she is special.

    14. VegasGal on said:

      Cute story with a lovable pup as a main character that includes great illustrations. Some of the wording felt a little bit "off" and did not flow as well as it should for a children's book.

    15. Ms Threlkeld on said:

      It felt like the author had met my dog and was writing in his voice! Very fun book of poems that would be great for talking to students about POV.

    16. Mandi Murphy on said:

      Book of cute rhyming poetry based on the thoughts of Stella, the dog. I would recommend it for older preschoolers and above.

    17. Bethany Boutin on said:

      By imagining a dog's thoughts on all aspects of life concerning her, this book's clever expressions from a dog's perspective show just how opinionated (and poetic) dogs can be.
