To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My son isn’t a big reader of chapter books, but he was familiar with this story from Disney + and he was so excited to tell me all about how it ended. He asked for other books in the series and is currently reading Dash. This is his favorite by far.
Told from the point of view of the dog. He uses a lot of metaphors and my 9yr old was constantly asking “what does that mean?” LOL I do wish they had included more details of the diphtheria serum run, but a good read for 11ish year olds anyway.
My 8-year-old daughter loved this story after we learned that Balto was not the greatest canine hero in the Alaska dogsled rescue (but Balto got the animated movie in the 90s). She also really enjoyed "Barry," another title in this series, which is the one about the legendary St. Bernard in Switzerland.
Nice books. Well-written, with nice charcoal drawings throughout. I like the historical contexts included in the books, my daughter loves them and has read them all (and the horse series, too!) She can read one book in about an hour and a half and has kept them all to read again.
