Old Yeller by Fred Gipson

**6th book so far this year. Not exactly keeping pace with last year...

We all know Old Yeller...I knew I was going to cry. But in the words of one of my students, "A good book will do that to you." And cry I did. Right in front of my students. One said, "It's ok. I watched the movie and I cried too!" I am on a roll with going back and reading some of my favorites and am loving it. I highly recommend it. These dog stories sure break me down in the end though! I think I may try Little Women next...that wasn't sad, was it? :-)

For goodness sakes woman, by any means don't re-read Where the Red Fern Grows! :) - Michelle
