    Good reading for my elementary school grandchildren, exciting enough for an evening storytime, chapter by chapter, yet it's also a fascinating story for a solo winter read. You can almost hear the wind howling and dogs straining to pull the sled along the frozen path. My 9 year-old grandson was entranced with Balto and the fact that it's a true story was particularly appealing.
