    In 1914, a beautiful foal with a distinctive cross on his nose is sold to the Army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western front. But his heart aches for Albert, the farmer's son he left behind. Will he ever see his true master again?

    Julie says: "Great idea for reluctant readers!"

    If you could sum up War Horse in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, Enduring, Magnificant


    What does John Keating bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The different voices were most helpful in distinguishing the different characters and emotions. Great way to model reading to lower level readers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, we read two chapters a day.


    Any additional comments?

    I used the audio version as a read along with my 7th grade class. We finished two days before the Christmas break and they were excited. They would come in and talk about how they saw the trailer for the movie that morning, or the night before. They wrote a short chapter review after each chapter and we discussed how the trailer followed the book. After the break, I am sure we will have further discussion on how the book and movie were the same and what were the differences. Overall, having the audio version that followed the book, word for word was a great way to keep them interested in reading.
