"...an irresistible glimpse into the mischievous canine mind."

I Didn't Do It
by Patricia and Emily MacLachlan
illustrated by Kate Schneider
Mockingbird Book for 2012-2013
Kids Wings Top Flight Book

Puppies are active and full of fun.

They are also full of mischief!

They can make big messes!

What would they say if they could talk? I Didn't Do It!

You always forgive your puppy and keep her safe. What would she say about that? "When I am grown, I will keep watch over you."

The puppy voices can be heard clearly in I Didn't Do It by Patricia and Emily MacLachlan. Their poems will make you smile and laugh and wish you had a new puppy that would grow up to become your best friend!

Your students will love Patricia and Emily MacLachlan's I Didn't Do It, a collection of perfect blank-verse poems with precious illustrations by Kate Schneider. Each poem is written in the voice of a puppy who has been into some mischief.

The Kids Wing's literature guide hosts a pre-reading discussion with 8 discussion cards. A "Good Dog" page invites students to find antonyms and describing words from the story, to make contractions, and to choose a dog they would pick. Students have an introduction to multiple-choice comprehension. They will enjoy the "Following Directions" page that allows them to pick a note from a hat and do what it commands, like "Act like a puppy that wants a treat." It even includes a primary logic problem in "Bad Dog."
