Read full description of the books:
I liked the idea of this book, and I really liked the first few chapters. The kids lost interest a bit through the middle, and I had to encourage them along, and then the last third of the book picked up again. I like the writing style well enough, but allow me to explain the low rating.
1. Seeing as we are moving to Alaska, I don't want the kids to learn that bears are friendly pets. Repeatedly throughout the story, anyone who tries to say that Mark's family ought to be cautious is ridiculed. I know it's fiction, but this point was beat into us all the way until the very last page.
2. Very clean, excepting taking the name of the Lord in vain many times. Since I was reading aloud, I edited this out, but I don't recommend books that I have to edit for the kids.
3. Finally, I was disappointed in the ending. I do not like it when books push any agenda, and I felt like the entire last chapter was a BIG push for anti-gun sentiment, which is a huge turn-off for me. So if you don't care about your 2nd amendment rights, and don't mind teaching your kids that guns are evil and want your kids to think mankind should never kill any animals, then you probably won't be offended by this book.
