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.
I teach 5th grade students in South Florida. Many of them have never seen snow or experienced the Alaskan experience. I purchased this book from Libby herself on a cruise ship this past summer and had her sign it to my class. I read the story to them this past week and they were absolutely enthralled! They would beg me each day to read a little bit more. They were so excited by the story of Libby's iditarod win that they want to track the 2012 Iditarod. The books is well written with an excellent combination of illustrations and REAL pictures form her experience. The kids LOVED it!
Best story whether you are Child or Adult - This journey will warm your heart and put a smile on your face! This children's book is as good or better than the Adult version...Thanks for such a Great book!
This is a great story to begin with, and I've read the adult book, "Race Across Alaska", but this beautifully illustrated children's version is a great way for the younger set to experience it's message of courage, determination, and teamwork. It's fun, exciting, and timeless. It's a real story and my grandkids especially appreciated that.
