Illus. in full color. "A compelling account, told in easy-to-read format, of
a sled dog who led his team over 53 miles of Alaska wilderness to deliver
medicine during an outbreak of diphtheria in 1925. Cook's softly colored
illustrations enhance the drama of a proud and heroic story that young readers
are sure to enjoy."-- "School Library Journal.
Gr 1-3-Balto, a sled dog, and his team traverse 53 miles of ice and snow in the Alaskan wilderness to deliver medicine in this 48-page beginning reader by Natalie Standiford (Random, 1989). Donald Cook's full-color illustrations are expressive, and John Gabriel's narration is slow enough for students to follow along. Music and sound effects add to the overall appeal of this story that is based on an actual event. One track has page-turn signals. Ideal for classroom listening or independent reading.-Leigh Ann Rumsey, Penn Yan Academy, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
