Yukon Sled Dog by Judith Janda Presnall
Yukon is the only female in her litter, she and her brothers are being trained by Roberta to be racing sled dogs. The book gives a child information about training a puppy to become a sled dog. Yukon runs, trains with older dogs, practices with a harness and eventually pulls a sled.
This book is told in a simple way young children will enjoy; with the age range from 3-8. I know my 7 year old would like the author’s notes that give more detail on sled dogs. However, he probably would not like the lack of a story-line. The illustrations are basic yet colorful and fun. Kids will love to learn the sled dog commands… Hike, Whoa, Gee, Haw and On by. Maybe your family dog can be taught a few!
If you have a young child that loves dogs, this would be a great book to pick up at the library.
