Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor Snow, Nor Gloom of Night...  Nov 2, 2006
...can keep these packs of hardy huskies and malamutes from delivering the antitoxin to Nome during the 1925 Diptheria Epidemic!

No train can get through due to the snow. The train that was originally transporting the medicine got mired in snow, more than 700 miles from its destination. Only a sled team of hardy dogs can reach the stricken town. Balto, the lead dog on one of the latter legs of that fateful run led a team of hardy malamutes and huskies some 53 miles. He led the team through adverse weather and land conditions including blizzards and a froxen river. The curly tailed dog is credited for seeing the medicine through; it is on his run that the medicine arrived 10 days ahead of schedule.

This book will delight and excite young readers who will wait with baited breath (even though they know the malamute team will reach the town like the Calvary). The delightful illustrations make a good thing even better. The history of the hardy Eskimo dog, the sled dog driver and the dog teams will provide a part of history that will be revived and discussed for a long time to come. Adding the map of the dog sled trail was an excellent teaching device.

Awesome Alaskan Adventure for Kids  Mar 18, 2006
I teach an afterschool literacy program for children in 3rd-6th grades. My 3rd grade struggling readers loved this story! However, you need to give them the background information ahead of time for them to get the most out of this story. We looked at copies of the original news stories and pictures of the real Balto, read books about Alaska and the Iditarod Race, and learned about "dogs with jobs" before we opened this book. The easy reading level and great illustrations made this a joy to read for my reluctant readers. They wrote a "missing chapter" of the dogs' journey to Nome. Fantastic!
Terrific Beginning Reader Book  Mar 2, 2006
I tutor my 7 year-old niece, who is a second grade stuggling reader. She LOVED this book! Although I planned to make about three sessions out of the story she insisted on reading (aloud) right to the end even though the book is slightly above her 1.8 reading ability level.
A good job on an interesting and exciting true story!  Aug 2, 2005
I was interested in getting this book, because it is a true story, and the people in the story are relatives of mine. Balto was really the dog who saved the children of Nome. His owner was Hal Seppala, a Sami reindeer herder from Finnmark Province, Norway. Balto was named after his friend, Samuel Balto. I wanted my grandchildren to be able to read the story for themselves.
The author did a good job. I don't know if he knew the entire story. A few more details would have been nice. However, it was well done and filled the need.

Not Bad  May 3, 2005
Yeah, I know. Some reviewer called Balto a fraud. He wasn't. He really did lead his sled team through 53 miles in subzero temperatures, though he wasn't the bravest dog ever(Togo was), so I took one star off. But his story deserves to be told just as much as Togo's, and yes, I love that husky Togo and his bravery (He lead 260 miles). It is 1925. There's an epidemic of diphtheria sweeping through Nome, and sled dogs are needed to deliver desperately needed serum. But in the subzero temperatures, will they make it? This is an excellent introduction to the Iditarod for children. (Oh, and by the way, Balto didn't try to claim all the glory. He was forced to run, though he was considered too 'weak' to do so. I call that animal abuse. He certainly proved he wasn't 'weak' since he ran 53 miles! Gunnar Kaasen even abandoned him to a dime museum later on! BAD pet keeper!)
