The Bravest Dog Ever by Natalie Standiford

The Bravest Dog Ever: The True Story of Balto (Step-Into-Reading)The Bravest Dog Ever: The True Story of Balto, written by Natalie Standiford and illustrated by Donald Cook, tells how a dog named Balto helped to get medicine to Nome, Alaska, during a snow storm in 1925.  Once again Anna enjoyed this book because it involved a dog but it also is a great history lesson.  Balto's run is part of the inspiration behind the Iditarod, an annual dog sled race in Alaska and I plan on doing a unit study around the Iditarod in the future so we will definitely be coming back to this book.

I found a pdf study guide for The Bravest Dog Ever which has some comprehension questions that could be used along with the book.
