From working dogs in earlier times to sports champions today, sled dogs are sure to capture children’s attention. In Sled Dogs, young readers will meet many dogs that compete alongside their handlers, or “mushers,” in popular winter races across the frozen terrain. Readers will learn the history of sled dogs as they meet Balto, a heroic working dog that raced 50 miles through blizzards to transport medicine for sick patients in Nome, Alaska, in 1925. They’ll also meet Pretty Boy, a persistent Husky that recovered from an accident to race the famed Iditarod. Vivid, high-impact photos and gripping narratives of sled dogs in action are guaranteed to entertain eager readers.
