Set in the Alaskan wilds, the Iditarod is one of the most extreme races on the planet. As the musher and leader of a high-powered dog sledding team, choosing a the right dog is just the first of your important decisions. From there, each choice you make will affect whether you come in first, fifth, last, or not at all. YOU CHOOSE how this adventure ends.
My 11-yr old loved following all the different paths in this Choose Your Own Adventure book, and learning about the grueling Iditarod! Kids can choose their dog team, their routes, and what to do in emergency situations (and yes, sometimes the outcomes are pretty dire--what a great way to learn about the consequences of our decisions in a "safe" environment). With 43 choices and 19 endings, and chock full of information about this intense competition, "Surviving the Iditarod" is a great addition to any home or school library
This book provided my son and I with multiple days of bedtime reading as we kept starting over and trying a different combination of choices. Some of the choices gave us serious anxiety! Not only was the book interesting and informative, but I appreciated how my son used critical thinking and reading comprehension to use the clues given to try and make the best choice moving forward. It was such fun, we will certainly keep this author on our radar for future books.
Loved this chapter book. A great number of choices for different adventures. The writer has a great grade school voice. This book will be good for girls or boys. High quality binding, which is great because it can be read over and over with different endings
My kids and I loved this book! It's a must for anyone who has any interest at all in dogs, dog sled racing, or Alaska. My eight and six year old were fascinated and of course the "choose your own adventure" is always a winner. Highly recommend.
