Terry Lynn Johnson is one of my go to authors for outdoor adventure stories for kids (I'm a big kid). Her books are fun, educational (learning about dogs and sledding) and ones that I wish were around when my boys were younger - but great for the grand kids.
Dog Sled School is about kids that aren't perfect, kids that struggle academically and socially. When Matt is assigned a school project it forces his hand in a direction he wants to steer clear of. It's an adventure story about friendship, family and learning it's okay to ask for help. I loved watching the changes in Matt, whether his attitude towards family or friends.
It's a perfect winter read as the snow flies outside while bundled up inside.
The author's website, http://terrylynnjohnson.com/ is a great place to visit.
