Really good!

I read this book and it broke my heart to see someone abuse an animal like that! I read it once and that was it! It was a great book, but I still can't get through it without crying!

Contains some bad language, but overall a good book.

It is a really good book, but there are some words and phrases that my daughter is not allowed to use. There were even some that she was not yet familiar with. The language made her uncomfortable.

Great book

I think "Shiloh" is a great book for children 9 and up, because it teaches people how do animals feel when they get treated badly from their owner. And when you hide something that you don't want no body to know about. In the story/movie you will see how a dog(Shiloh) is treated bad by its owner(Judd Travers), and a boy named Marty try's to save him.

Change Is Possible

It allows children to consider both sides of a person's personality/attitude. They reflect on changing for the good and to help others.

Teaches kids compassion

There are 4 bad words that need to be removed: Page 16 & 53 H***; Page 26 & 54 D***** Once those words are covered or whited-out we had no problem, children do have to understand there are not nice people in this world and that people abuse animals and other people; and we can do something about it.

Awesome book!

I read this book as a child and remembered it when I had to do a book/movie analysis in college so here it is. Judd is the antagonist who keeps his dog (later known as Shiloh) from the protagonist whom is Marty. The whole story is the process in which Marty takes to try and get Shiloh and "save" him from Judd. There is some violence in this text towards animals. But overall it is a good book... a must have for any future teacher's collection.
