Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The Newbery Honor author, a two-time participant in the Iditarod, describes the thrill of a winter's night run with a team of sled dogs. Ages 4-8.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-There are few things more beautiful than a moonlit winter night, and Paulsen has captured that, plus the thrill of speeding across the snow via dogsled, in a text as crisp, clean, and magical as such evenings. It is the dogs' emotions, as much as the narrator's, that are evoked: the animals strain at their harnesses, singing in anticipation of the run. Ruth Wright Paulsen's illustrations show the nuances of canine behavior in the positions of ears, tails, lolling tongues, and flashing paws. The swift, strong, smiling creatures are one with the white and blue-black night; on one double-page spread, the aurora borealis in ghostly greens is their background. Dogteam reads aloud beautifully, but its poetry will be best understood through one-on-one sharing with an adult. All who see and hear it will, for a few moments, join in the winter run. Children who live in areas without snow will experience the wonder of its season through this book. For those living in cold climates, it may inspire a nighttime ski, or skate, or at least a moonlit walk, and they will understand the dogs' dilemma: although it is comforting to come home to warmth and firelight, something in them yearns to run forever.

By Isabel on Sept. 25 2000
Format: Paperback
DOGTEAM is a beautifully illustrated, as well as beautifully, simply, dramatically written book. It is not exactly a children's picture book, but more for lovers of dogs of all ages. Gary Paulsen is the author and retired dogsledder, who is most remembered for his young adult books such as HATCHET and DOGSONG. Ruth Wright Paulsen is his wife and the spectacular watercolor illustrator of the book. The picture book seems to be based on Paulsen's midnight adventures with his beloved dogteam, and readers will feel as if they are running alongside the dogteam, the sled whispering behind them. A great book.

Beautiful illustrations and vivid, descriptive sentences! I purchased this book to teach my first graders about descriptive writing. They were in awe of the book! Living in the south, most of them have never even seen snow or even heard of dog sledding. After having been dog sledding myself I knew I had to find a way to share the experience and this book was it! It is truly one of my favorites!

Hi, I received the copy of Dogsled by Gary Paulson.
It arrived in a reasonable amount of time.
I was surprised at the condition of the book. It had dried mud smeared all over the front cover (it is a hard cover book). It was easy enough to use a couple of wet wipes to get the mud off but I would certainly not order another book from this vendor.

A book for all ages Dec 14 2004
By Elizabeth M. Timmins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Gary Paulson's Dogteam is a beautifully written prose poem that describes a dogteam's running on a cold winter's night. As the author takes the reader across the moonlit trail, the sensory, descriptive words make you feel you are truly on the trail with the team. The watercolor illustrations by Ruth Wright Paulson capture the eagerness the dogs feel for running at night. I use this book with third grade students to model the use of descriptive language in writing. The children love the book and read it over and over.

Ethereal Aug. 29 2009
By Emily J. Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic picture book from the master of the wilderness/dog tales. The words are more accurately told as fantastic prose describing both the movement of the dog sled as well as the surrounding natural world. Are both worth celebrating? Certainly, and I daresay the Paulsens agree with me. The illustrations are a gorgeous balance to this quick and moving story.

Love this book Oct. 1 2011
By Missy G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is one of my favorites that I bought as a Christmas gift to share with my children. Love the story. Buy in hardcover if you can, and your kids can hand down to their children. Books like this are SO much better than tv or video games!
