Fourth grader Annie Rossi’s got lots of great ideas: how to be a Model Citizen, how to be a (fake) Yankees fan, and how to teach her professor dad how to race on a bicycle! Her four-legged best friend, Leo, completely agrees.

Great Book!

Review by Pup

I’ve read this book at least five times. It’s about a girl who writes letters to her dog. Very sweet and heartwarming.

Letters To Leo!!

Review by 1SuperReader

I thought this book was really sweet and funny. I loved Annie and the letters she wrote to her (new) dog Leo. It was also bittersweet to experience the sadness Annie felt over losing her mother. If you like this book, you should also read the prequel titled Remembering Mrs. Rossi.
