This first book in a historical fiction chapter book series will captivate readers from the start. This action packed tale leads readers through the challenges and hardships of traveling on the Oregon trail during 1850. A golden retriever named Ranger travels back in time and finds himself experiencing the journey west with the Abbott family. This is a bit similar to magic tree house books as the first aid kit transports Ranger through time. I highly recommend this book! ( )

Kids need historical information written in an interesting perspective, using strong characters they can relate too. A dog's perspective of the Oregon Trail hits those nails on the head! Great for either reluctant readers of 5th and above, this is really tailored for 4th grade, dovetailing nicely with their social studies work. ( )

This series' first entry introduces a courageous time-traveling golden retriever.... While digging for a bone in his backyard, Ranger discovers a first-aid kit. Mysteriously imbued with time-travel properties, the kit sends Ranger back in time to Independence, Missouri—a starting point for the Oregon Trail—where Sam Abbott is searching for his little sister. ... Though Ranger grows to love the Abbotts, he’s constantly on the lookout and longing for Luke, his boy in the future. ... This well-paced story will keep the attention of even reluctant readers with its commitment to accurately chronicling the excitement and danger of the Oregon Trail. Whom will Ranger save next?

A time-traveling golden retriever named Ranger stars in this magic-tinged first book in the Ranger in Time series. Trained as a search-and-rescue dog, Ranger is magically transported away from his young owner, Luke, to the year 1850.... It turns out that Ranger is just what a boy named Sam Abbott, his family, and the other families they are traveling with need to survive the treacherous 2,000-mile journey from Independence, Mo., to the Oregon Territory. ... McMorris’s richly rendered illustrations heighten the plot’s many moments of danger and drama.... An author’s note offers additional context and detail about the challenges pioneers faced and the real-life research that went into this story. Ages 7–10.
