that read together!
The Iditarod is a 1,049 mile sled dog race through the cold Alaskan tundra. This year, let's
participate in the race! Your family or team will read, read, read. The sled dog teams will
mush, mush, mush! WHo will get to 1,049 first? The musher you choose (in miles), or your
reading team (in minutes spent reading)?

family or team to enjoy reading together & on your own.
