This book was just OK

Overall, this book was OK. I do love dogs and that's one of the reasons why I chose this book, but I wish that there were more than just letters. It made for a very quick read and I found myself getting bored. I think this book would be more enjoyable to younger readers, but it you're looking for a quick read and you love dogs, I would still recommend it.

A big (two) thumbs UP!

I'm usually very picky with the books I like and often have a hard time getting through books, but I loved this book! I liked the letter format of the book, instead of a normal novel. It made it easier to read. I would recommend this book who really care abut friendship.

This is a pretty good book, but not my favorite. I like that one of her other friends has a pet Goldfish and makes comics about his Goldfish. Leo was really cute too.

I loved this book!

This book made me think more about friendship.

Annie Rossi's mom died and her death made her think when she was with Leo and anywhere she always thought about her mom and what her mom did and what she can do to mimic her mom. She always was telling Leo what happened in her life and looked at Leo like her best friend. This book made me think about what friendship means not only with people but with pets and animals too.

I liked this book.

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

I thought that this book would be a lot longer than it actually is. It is mostly just “letters” to her dog that she reads to him.

It took long for it to come (like all others and I hate that) but it was a 100000009999999/10

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

This book was okay for me. As a fourth grade reader, I found it a little easy to read. I recommend it for 5, 6, and 7 year olds. Overall, it is a sweet loving book and i recommend it for young readers.

It was sad but in a humorous way.
Submitted 6/9/2019 by AW2018

I would read more books by this author.

This book made me think more about friendship.

The way Annie explains her sadness is so very humorous!
A few things i think that this book made me think more about friendship is that she writes to Leo every night! The way she starts to kinda hate Jean-Marie, and Edward. I would love to read more books by this author!

One of the reasons I ❤️ This book is because of the 🐕. Another reason is because the letters were not like regular letters it also was just like the story when you got into the letter. I think this is a good book for 6 to 12. Enjoy reading Letters to Leo!!!!!!

great book but SAD

I really liked it but I wish it had a more happy ending

Not my taste.
Submitted 6/4/2019 by Penguania

This book is really not to my taste. I prefer a book with a regular story rather than these little notes. I also really like baseball and I was disappointed that the description made me think it would have more content about the Yankees but it was only ever mentioned once in the introduction.

I mean don't get me wrong this was a great book but i'm 10 and it was kind of "baby-ish" for people of my age and older. If you are younger than ten then this book should be great!

This book is very good and sweet. I didn't want the book to end! I liked the book because it shows a lot of feeling, and it is from the main character's perspective. I also like the book because Annie (the main character) is funny and sweet. Definitely read the book if you like fun, easy, sweet books. I recommend curling up and reading it in your bed!!!!!!!!!
