“I used (300 Minutes of Danger) in my 6/7 composite literacy class and it was fantastic. The stories were exciting and both the boys and girls enjoyed them. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to engage young or challenged readers in literacy. Plus, as the teacher, it’s always a bonus when I enjoy the book as much as the students. Jack Heath has created the perfect mix of age-appropriate danger and excitement. I highly recommend this text to teachers and young readers alike.” –Alice
