Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic Dog Story This book has earned its way into being called a classic of children's early readers.  Still in print after more 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 through a blizzard to go further than any other team to make to Nome just in time to save lives.  An exciting story with cute illustrations of the dogs showing them with a slight puppy look that is sure to delight dog lovers and impress readers with the fact that this really happened.  I have an old original copy of the book which is labeled Step 2, however the book now is published as part of the Step 3 line.

Editorial Reviews

"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.
