Letters to Leo
( by Amy Hest/ illus. Julia Denos, Candlewick $14.95 Score: )

Fourth grader Annie writes letters to her new dog Leo almost everyday. Her letters help her deal with the ups and downs of life with her teacher, Mrs. No-Fun Bailey, her best friend leaving and her memories of her dead mother. This is a tender little book with a quiet humor, warmth, and a loving father. The pace may be a little slow for some, but the letter format will make this easier for readers new to chapter books. 3rd grade and up.
