I used this as a home schooling aid for my 5th grade daughter. I thought it was helpful and had good, creative ideas for responding to JULIE OF THE WOLVES. The map activity was the least helpful--it was recommended after Part 1 of the book, but referenced events the end of the novel, so we did it after my daughter read the entire book. I liked most two activities: a presentation on Eskimo customs, which my daughter researched, and an end-of-book report in a box. I am not a very creative home schooling mom, so this book was good for me to use for my more creative daughter. I will check into other Literature Guides by this publisher, since I enjoyed using this one so much. I intend to save this copy to use with my youngest daughter in a few years.
