I love this book and so do my children! I remember reading this book back when I was 11 After reading it I was ready to run off and live in the woods myself Now re-reading it with my own children I see that same look in their eyes that I had back then You can see their own wheels turning dreaming of what it would be like to survive in the wilderness all on their own After reading this book they began building their own woodland retreats gathering materials and planning out how they could make it through a winter What learning opportunities this book brought forth! The possibilities are endless on things you can do with this bookIn this story a young boy named Sam sets off into the Catskill mountains to attempt to make it on his own in the wilderness Through trial and tribulation he makes it through a winter managing to find shelter and food He learns as he goes along and not only survives through the seasons but thrives This fictional story provides a great source of naturalistic learning and survival skills It teaches not only about nature but also to respect nature to be part of nature yourself What an inspirational book It captures the wonder of nature that children naturally have and focuses on a child's desire for independence and adventure Jean Craighead George speaks to the explorer in all of us young and old

My 11 year old son who is a very reluctant reader (would much rather play video games) breezed through this book and the two sequels I used it as part of his school reading because it was recommended by Sonlight and he has a penchant for birds

I have twin boys and they are both doing the Total Language Plus reader guide for My Side the Mountain. I have one book but it will be easier for them to each have their own book. Plus, they LOVE this book and might want to each keep their own copy forever!
