Publisher's Summary

Balto has a quiet life as a sled dog - until tragedy strikes. Dozens of children in Nome become sick with diphtheria. Without antitoxin serum, they will perish - and the closest supply is 650 miles away! The only way to get the serum to Nome is by sled, but can the dogs deliver it in time? Heading bravely into a brutal blizzard, Balto leads the race for life.

very good read

For kids but still a very nice read. Good for younger readers or for a casual story.

A Win for My Kindergartener!

I am always looking for good stories for my kindergartener. Sometimes themes and plots are too mature, but this true story was a perfect addition to our audiobook collection. The narration is clear and engaging.
