    4. -Use in a study about Terry Fox-Describing his journey across Canada and the struggles he faced on that journey.


    5. Read this to my grade 5 students. Although they all had some background on Terry, this book helped them learn more about him. Loved the story.




    6. This book takes a serious subject and lays it out nicely so that children can understand why we still raise money for Terry Fox. I love reading this to my students each fall!


    7. Good short summary of Terry Fox's life. I was expecting a biographical book, but this was just a small hardcover book, only 20 pages.
