Having followed the Iditarod race for the last few years, I was anxious to read the e-book called Following the Iditarod by Dena Wood. I was pleased to find a very well documented account of what the Iditarod race is all about as well as a good basic outline you can follow to study this event. Included in this book are projects and ideas broken out by subject by which you and your family can explore and learn about the Iditarod race in great detail. The author has researched and included many good resources as well as worksheets and ideas in her book. I am looking forward to using this as the foundation for a unit study during next year's Iditarod race. As it stands one can use her book to do a complete study but it also can be used as a supplement to your own study. If you are interested in learning more about this great dogsled race then I would recommend this e-book as a fantastic beginning for your studies.
