I especially enjoyed Rescue Josh McGuire because the setting of the story is in Bozeman, Montana. The book is filled with adventure in a place I lived for years. This made imagining the environment easy for me. The story made me think about how life can change in an instant and how life can change. The book has many possibilities for lessons. The spirit of adventure and survival lends itself to book talks for middle school students. Some of the issues he faces I can see being interesting to students. I am planning on reading this book to kick off an author study for our students. My hope is to have Ben Mikaelsen visit our school this spring.

This is an exciting book about a twelve year old boy who runs away to save a bear cub's life. The boy gets caught in a blizzard with the cub and his dog. The descriptions of the Montana wilderness and blizzard and the action made this a real page turner. ( )
