Welcome to the blog for Owney, the Mail-Pouch Pooch

Hello! Owney was a dog who loved to see the world. In this blog, we’ll follow Owney’s lead, but we’ll all do it safely at home. Ready? Let’s travel.

Suggested Blog Activities: (1) tell what you liked about the book, (2) flag the map where OWNEY, THE MAIL-POUCH POOCH has been read, and (3) practice friendly letter writing.

Below is a three-minute video I made about what Owney might have seen when he was alive. If your browser blocks YouTube.com, then please see TeacherTube.com.
