Book Review - Bound for Snow
Readers can imagine themselves as the main character of this interactive story, a girl who loves to be outside in wintertime. She's teaching Honey the golden retriever how to pull a dog sled, but the pup just doesn't seem to be getting the hang of it. She knows the feeling—she's been trying to learn how to snowboard, but she spends more time on the ground than she does on her feet. Will she stick with it, even when things are hard? Can she find the strength to ask her friends for help? With more than 20 different endings, girls will enjoy this book again and again to see how different decisions change the story. This book comes with a limited-time access code to innerstarU.com—an interactive online world—plus, a secret access code for even more endings online!
My Take on the Book
Innerstar University is a fictional place where the girls live together in a dorm. As your young girl (8 years or older) reads the story, she has an opportunity to determine what kind of adventure she will enjoy. Each page has a direction at the bottom. Some pages tell you to go to directly to another page and keep reading. Some pages give you a choice of two pages to turn to depending on your choice in the activity you wish to explore.
The really nice aspect of this book is that it can be read over and over again because the reader can continue to choose different endings for each experience. It certainly is hours and hours of reading enjoyment.
This particular story involves the reader YOU and your choice to either learn to dogsled or snowboard. I read several of the endings and feel this story would be one a young girl will enjoy.
