Kids say: Not yet rated

Simple, upbeat, and informative, YUKON SLED DOG shows the development and training of an Alaskan dog from birth to race time. Bright, digitally colored pencil illustrations make the crisp, snowy landscape pop.

Kids who like animals will enjoy this coming-of-age tale of a special pup, and readers of all ages will pick up interesting information about the ways of "mushers." Focused on the positive, the book tells only of well-treated dogs and doesn't address potential issues of animal welfare.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
