Kid Review: Emily and Carlo

Kid Review: Emily and Carlo

Emily and CarloThe only sibling left in the Dickinson house In Amherst, Massachusetts, in the winter of 1849, Emily gets a dog who becomes her constant companion and who is featured in some of the poems she writes. Includes brief notes on the life and work of Emily Dickinson.

Mia says:

I read this book with my great-aunt last week-end and I love it. The story, the poems and the pictures are beautiful! The story of a very large dog and a very small woman that loved to write poetry – Emily Dickinson. My favorite poem in the story is:

Twas my one glory
Let it be
Remembered
I was owned of thee.”

Emily and her dog, Carlo, were best friends and loved to walk and watch – flowers, frogs, everything. They were best friends! I love gardens, dogs and poems! I hope you like it too.”

An interesting story about when the census began.  Even if it weren’t historically based, students would enjoy the scheming.”
