The Dog Ate My Homework

The Dog Ate My Homework - blog post image

Poet Aaron James provides young readers
with a collection of hilarious and touching poems, beautifully
illustrated, which recount the exploits of young Jimmy. The poems
cover everything from youthful games and exploits, to school dinners
and making new friends which will resonate with both young children
and their families.

Fun, cheerful and illustrated in an eye-catching, hand-drawn style,
THE DOG ATE MY HOMEWORK will not only entertain and spark the
imagination of children from the ages of 4-8 years old but will
provide parents, and extended families, with something new and amusing
with which to occupy those tricky lights-out bedtime moments.

My Thoughts

Children will take this one straight off the bookshelf on account of its appealing title and eye-catching colourful cover illustrations.

Anything that gets children into poetry is a winner with me and young readers will certainly relate to the subject matter covered in these poems; homework, first day at school, school dinners and new trainers.  Evocative stuff for primary school children. 

The poems read well aloud, with or without an adult, and would be comforting to read quietly in bed alone too.  There is a passion and enthusiasm to the text young readers will definitely find contagious and the illustrations are vivid and clear.
