Where the Red Fern Grows
Such a great book. Even after all these years, I still remember it like it was yesterday.
Where the Red Fern Grows was about a boy who always wanted hunting dogs.
He enventually gets the dogs he wanted for so long. He trains them to hunt racoons.
His life with his dogs are full of adventure and excitment.
It made someone I knew cry at the end.
This book can make you cry if you have a dog you love.
Best book I ever read about a boy and his dogs amed Little Ann and Old Dan.
This book was read to me by my fifth grade teacher. I thought it was great. It's not normally something I'd read on my own, but I liked it. It was a great book. It managed to make me cry a little bit, but I'm pretty sensitive, so a lot of thingsdo that. I think it's a book I might read again. Maybe sometime in the future. It's something I'd suggest to a friend.
This book was a great read. It was really realistic and you could really relate to the characters. Even though this book was set in a different time, you could still see the struggles everyone had to go through. This book was a sad read, but I loved it. It deserves 4 out of 5 stars.
I absolutely love this book. It's about a boy named Billy who really wants a dog bad. He just does just about anything to get a dog. I think this book is good for teaching young kids to respect animals. Theres nothing I can say that I didn't like about this book. It's one of those books that you would want to read again and again. In the end it's really sad how the two dogs die. The reason why they call this book where the Red Fern Grows is because the dogs are buried right near where the red fern is growing. This book made me cried because it was just so sad how those dogs died. It broke Billy's heart. I just thought it was so sweet how he loved those dogs. If i could i would give this book a 10, because it's just that good.
Where the Red Fern Grows was a very sweet book, but sad. I was sitting in my room alone reading it and when I read past the part when the dog dies, I started getting teary-eyed and all the sudden, started crying. I don't know why. I'm not one to usually cry when I read books, but it made me feel like I was actually there and that was my dog. I would recommend this book. So sweet, but so saaaad!!!
An old kid favorite. I remember reading Where The Red Fern Grows as a young sixth grader. The book captivated my mind and desperatly held my attention. It opened my heart to a new way of reading by allowing me to experience the sad tales of others. I loved this book and highly recommend it to book lovers of all ages.
This is a great book for anyone, especially dog lovers. You'll be crying by the end.
I had to read it for the Battle of the Books in 5th grade, and I was afraid of the small print (I love books too, it just scares me). But once I got into the book, I could not put it back down.
Billy lives on a farm in the Ozarks. He wants two coonhounds very badly; however his papa cannot afford any. Billy works hard and eventually has enough money to buy two coonhounds. Billy trains his dogs to become highly-skilled raccoon hunters. The two dogs, Old Dan and Little Ann, are determined hunters and never let Billy down.I was once again, so engrossed that I read it in one night, ignoring the fact that I had to work the next day. It is a beautiful story, a timeless one. A childhood favorite. I am amazed that it didn't win a Newberry Honor medal, or some other kind of award. This is one of the books that helped instill a loving of reading at an early age. A GEM, don't miss it. A story about a young boy on the brink of manhood and his love for his pups....whom he worked so hard for.
This is my most favorite book of all time. Period. I've never thought an animal story would keep me crying all night.
This story is mainly based on a boy who is in love with his two dogs. Both of his dogs have been with him for a majority of his life and they form a bond that's so unbreakable that nothing could ever break them apart. Until a tragic ending results in death, tears, and love. This book is undeniably a masterpiece and will continue to be one for many generations.
