Kristy Chapman from Nelson’s Packrat Annies reviews My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George:

When I was a kid I read My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George and it took me away completely. I was so amazed and fascinated by this book. Recently I read it to my children and it had the same effect again for me and my kids. It is about a boy who goes and lives in the forest in a tree and then learns to live off the land. That is putting it very simply of course, but when you read this book it is magic. It is the ultimate adventure and really what all kids imagine at some point in their life, but not written in a way that encourages your child to behave foolishly. I still to this day want to one day hollow out a tree and live in it and can be taken away by my imagination whenever I walk through a forest because of this book. While reading it to my children, they could not get enough of it either. This book is written so simply yet, in my opinion, so well. It is very readable for a child but also for the parent reading it to a child. I have recommended this book many times over to customers over the years and always had a good response after. So if you are looking for a good book to entertain you as well as your kid I think this would be a great choice.
