The best Book The Bravest Dog Ever: The True Story of Balto This is not fine literature, but I usually find these learn-to-read books dull and this one tells a compelling story of a dog in Alaska who helps rescue a town by delivering medicine during a blizzard. My dog-fearing 4-year-old enjoyed listening to it and the author does a good job of describing the dangers of diptheria (the book is set in 1925) without scaring the bejeebers out of kids. I wish more early readers were as interesting to adults.

  1. This is not fine literature, but I usually find these learn to read books dull and this one tells a compelling story of a dog in Alaska who helps rescue a town by delivering medicine during a blizzard My dog fearing 4 year old enjoyed listening to it and the author does a good job of describing the dangers of diptheria the book is set in 1925 without scaring the bejeebers out of kids I wish early readers were as interesting to adults.


  2. A real hit for my early reader Mom enjoyed it too A captivating true adventure story, smartly written so it didn t feel watered down to a specific reading level.


  3. This is the first chapter book that I ever read and it still holds a special place in my heart During summer break, after kindergarten, I picked this up and struggled my way through it I was captivated by the setting and the character of Balto and, for the first time, I really enjoyed reading something by myself I owe at least a portion of my love of books now to this book from all those years ago.


  4. 3.5 stars Last in the little stack of books I bought for my niece for her birthday A true story of a sled dog relay that brought urgently needed medicine to a town in Nome, Alaska in 1925 This is a Level 3 book in Random House s Step into Reading series When my niece s teacher said level 3 books, I think this level 3 is what she probably had in mind The writing style is simplistic, and sentences are often broken midway, making it feel choppy, but I think this style will benefit those just starti [...]


  5. A real page turner My almost 7 year old read the whole thing all at once She was familiar with the story from Magic Treehouse Next time we go to NYC we are going to visit the Balto statue


  6. This book has earned its way into being called a classic of children s early readers Still in print after than twenty years, it s a story that will never age Briefly telling the true story of a sled dog relay that travelled from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska to save the people of Nome from an outbreak of diphtheria in 1925 The story plays on the emotions by focusing on a family with two sick children and then telling the story of Balto, the lead dog of the last team which made heroic strides throug [...]


  7. Reading the acts of bravery and heroism to my children, then thinking of the dire need of medicine for the children and possibly the whole town of Nome, AK brought tears to my eyes Truly a very special book.




  8. In Alaska in 1925, there were few roads or other transportation paths, so in the winter the only realistic transportation outside the towns was by dogsled Many people had very capable teams that could transport critical supplies and they were often on standby for emergencies The lead dog was key to any dogsled team, it sniffed out the trail, all other dogs simply pulled and followed It was in the middle of the winter in Nome, Alaska in 1925 when some children came down with diphtheria, a deadly [...]


  9. I love this book I loved watching the movie that was made from this story when I was younger The book has great illustrations and is a good nonfiction book that most kids wouldn t recognize as nonfiction The book is about Alaska and how the only transportation is through dog sleds In the town of Nome, two children get sick The doctor didn t have the medicine to treat them A hospital far away tried to send the medicine by train but it got stuck in the snow The town decided to do a dog sled relay [...]

  11. Cerita tentang anjing penarik kereta salju yang berjuang memimpin regunya melawan badai di Alaska untuk mengirim obat difteri ke sebuah kota terdepan di Alaska yang saat itu tidak mungkin dicapai oleh pesawat maupun kereta karena kondisi cuaca yang sangat buruk Cerita yang singkat namun menarik mampu membuat anak anak membayangkan hebatnya daya juang Balto.

  14. Genre Informational NonfictionGrade Level 2nd 3rd gradeThis nonfiction information book is perfect for middle elementary students, or a read aloud to younger elementary students It tells the true story of such a brave dog It would be a perfect book for students learning about Alaska, transportation and the difficulties of living in that state several years ago I think since its about a dog it would captivate and keep the attention of the students.

  17. I didn t care for this I realize it is a kid s book, but it was inaccurate, and gave all the credit to the last team, rather than to all the teams that worked their hearts out to save Nome There were a lot of heroic dogs and mushers, not just Balto.

  22. Our youngest brought this book home today from her second grade class to practice her reading It was quite easy for her, but it was a very interesting story I think we ve read this book before, but I hadn t logged it yet, so it must ve been a long time ago.The narrative is perfect for children who aren t quite ready for chapter books It s long enough to tell a fairly detailed story, but short enough to read the whole story without stopping There are lots of illustrations and they help convey the [...]
