BALTO cover image
"Really great." "Exciting." Animal lovers responded particularly well. Kids were curious to know more about the real story. Stimulated discussion afterwards about the role of huskies in everyday life. "Dogs are more than just pets."
Excellent, action-packed production. Good adaptation of a true story, demonstrating the idea to "keep trying, don't quit." Children identified with rejection and praise. Encouraged reading the book. More educational than expected.
Balto, an outcast sled dog, becomes a hero when he saves the children of Nome, Alaska from an epidemic. A team of sled dogs, carrying medicine, races six hundred miles through a blizzard. Features voices of Kevin Bacon, Bridget Fonda and Bob Hoskins.
