92 years ago TODAY (January 27, 1925) the race to save Nome, Alaska, began.
Seems like a good reason to go to the library and get a book to brush up on this event!
Here are the books you can look for:
Balto of the Blue Dawn (Magic Tree House Book #54). There is also the Magic Tree House Fact Tracker, Dogsledding and Extreme Sports: A Nonfiction Companion to Magic Tree House #54: Balto of the Blue Dawn. But I haven’t read it so I don’t know how much of it is about Balto.
Five True Dog Stories
-contains the story of Balto and other dogs who did amazing things
Alaska’s Dog Heroes
-another good one for the kid interested in more amazing dogs – also contains Balto’s story.
