My first favorite part is when Gunnar entered the dog-sled relay. That is my favorite part because I think he was thinking ďI donít know what the problem is, but I will still enter the dog-sled relay, just to save Nome. After that I will feel like a hero!Ē I know how a hero feels like and a hero feels very very proud. I like this book because this book is non-fiction and I like non-fiction books and movies. The illustrations are really really unique because in the sky he used color blending. For example he mixed yellow with orange and blue with purple. I like Balto because he went through cracking ice, snow drifts, and more. This book is different from some books because it is a non-fiction story and usually non-fiction books have photos, but this one is with illustrations. The first time I ever read this book I wondered what the ending was because the author made a great story that I wanted to wonder about it.
I recommend this book to 1st Ė 3rd graders because there might be some hard words that kindergarteners donít know how to pronounce and it might be too easy for 4th and 5th graders. I think that dog lovers should read this book because the main character is a dog. I think kids should read this book because it is very exiting and sometimes makes you read more.
