Excellent read

My 6 year old loved having this read to him. It is a very well written book.

Informative, engaging, great beginning chapter book

I purchased this book along with several others because of its high interest topic, for my son, who is very capable, but at times, a reluctant reader. He became quickly engrossed in the story and read it in two sittings. I recommend this book for its ability to engage and inform. I am impressed with the content of the book, which lacks no important information for any young person curious about the pursuit of Mt. Everest. The drawings and photographs are also appealing. Our son is 8 and reads at a fourth grade level, and this book is recommended for second to fourth grade readers. The bottom line for us is keeping him interested with good material, which this book accomplished easily. He is looking forward to more :)

Step-Into-Reading Review

This excellent book in Series 5 combines reading skills with historical, scientific and environmental issues that can be understood easily by young children. In general, Step-Into-Reading is a good series, highly recommended to parents who want to encourage their children to read and love literature. But the content of this book and many others in Step 5 is a step above.

A good read

My 7 year old enjoyed this book. He says it's "exciting". This is the kind of reading he can do on his own because the colored pictures help hold his interest. Topics include adventure, teamwork, and friendship despite cultural differences. A minor element I wasn't thrilled with was references to Mr. Tenzing's offering to "the gods" when they got to the top, but I guess that goes along with the cultural difference thing.
