Wonderful! My 4 year old (who I have read the Little House series to several times) loved this book, and so did I! I lived in Alaska, so it was very special.

Sweet Home Alaska brings to life the story of a pioneer family who moves to Alaska in 1934 as part of an FDR program. Kids will cheer for the main character, 11-year-old Trip, who has a can-do attitude in the face of many challenges. Carole Estby Dagg captures the times and the place with amazing details that will be fascinating for readers of all ages. A great adventure story for elementary and middle schoolers!
