My grandsons ask for this book to be read again and again. It connects them to the realities of early pioneers and encourages them to have the same "I can do it" attitude that even the young needed in order to make it west. Wagon Wheels also shows the importance of family love and responsibility, father to child and brother to brother as well as the responsibility and need for communities to be aware of and support the needs of others. If you are looking for a book with a reality check that connects your child to the history of this country and encourages you and your child to persevere and keep trying when the path seems long and insurmountable, this is the book for you.

This book is about how the settlers had to live when they were moving across the land and tells a lot about life in the dugouts.I didn't really like the story behind the book whrer they were leaving the boys behind i dont think i would have this book in my class room. As a classroom extension I am goin to have my students study dug outs. Then we are going to draw what we think a dugout would lokk like.
