Big-Enough Anna: The Little Sled Dog Who Braved the Arctic Reviews
This book had me captured and on the edge of my seat the whole time. I loved the book and I believe a lot of kids would love it to. Although it was a longer book, I believe there is a enough action to hold students attention when I read it aloud.
the little sled dog who could - great true story, that even if you're not the biggest, as long as you work hard, you can achieve things.
This book is about the first women to sled across the Arctic alone. It is about how the smallest dog in the group helped them. It is non-fiction, has a story that empowers women while showing how size does not always matter. I really enjoyed learning about this story. I can use this book in the classroom for a unit about pioneers, people who did things first.
Children love to read about imaginary places, people, and animals.But, it is important to also read them, stories about real life adventures.This book, Big-Enough Anna, describes how little Anna was able to help Pam Flowers journey over 2500 miles through the frozen Arctic!I have always been fascinated by Alaska and the Arctic so when I saw this book at the bookstore, I immediately picked it up! I am so glad I did because the story is engaging for both adults and children.The map at the end helps little ones realize how long the journey was. The illustrations bring the story to life.I also enjoyed seeing photographs of the real Anna and her sled-mates in the Afterward of the book.For added fun, Anna's paw is on the frontpiece of the book. Love that!I will most likely be reading the full novel this children's book is taken from.I would like to learn more about their adventure.
Anna may be small in stature, but she is brave and loves to run. She has the heart of a sled dog! In this story, based on actual events, Anna becomes a lead dog in a 2500 mile expedition across the Arctic. Great story to illustrate hard work and desire over physical ability.
A good addition to the sled dog genre. Beautiful illustrations and exciting story with happy ending.
Pam Flowers will be visiting my school in March to discuss this book and her experience as the first woman to traverse the North American Artic alone. Looking forward to her visit!
Pam visited our school in March 2014 and she spoke of this story of her little sled dog, Anna who is a dog that has a big heart and a hard worker.
