Everest for Kids

Posted Wednesday, March 19th, 2008 12:09 am GMT -6 in Reading

While browsing for kid books the other day at Barnes and Noble in Eagan, I came across this three-book series by Gordon Korman about Mount Everest. I pushed my oldest to read them quickly so Dad could have a turn. ๐Ÿ™‚

Being a huge fan of the mountain, I enjoyed this fictional account of the “SummitQuest” expedition. As Scholastic describes it:

They come from all across America to be the youngest kid ever to climb Everest. But only one will reach the top first. The competition is fierce. The preparation is intense. When the final four reach the higher peaks, disaster strikes รขโ‚ฌโ€ and all that separates the living from the dead is chance, bravery, and action.

Fun for young and old.
