Reviews

New Moon Girls, "Lacey Recommends" - Lacey Louwagie

"Can you imagine making a 364-mile journey in the Arctic wilderness with nothing but a dog and a sled? Helen Thayer was the first woman to make such a trip in 1988, and along the way she encountered a bear, icy weather, and injuries. You can read about her journey in Helen Thayer’s Arctic Adventure: A Woman and a Dog Walk to the North Pole by Sally Isaacs. The full-page illustrations will make you feel like you are right there with Helen — but you won’t have to bundle up to take the journey!" - New Moon Girls, "Lacey Recommends"

Imagination Soup - Melissa Taylor

"At age 50, Helen will walk to magnetic north pole —  a harrowing journey with ice storms, polar bears, and a lack of food. She and her dog, Charlie, take it day by day and make it. This is a well-written, exciting true story adventure of courage and determination." - Imagination Soup
