The Boy Who Flew With Eagles by Ben Woodard - REVIEW by my SON!
The author, Ben Woodard, asked me in December 2011 to have my 14 year old son read this book over the Christmas holidays, and to tell him what he thought about the story. It was provided to me for free in exchange for an honest review. This was an experiment as I was going to try to see if I could get my son to read this story and ask him to tell me about the story, as he does NOT like to read! It took us until now, which is the beginning of September 2012, for him to 'want' to read this book on my Kindle! He read it!! I'm SO excited and PROUD of him as HE asked me if he could read it! This came out of the blue! I asked my son if he would tell me what the book was about and I would type up what he said and it would be his FIRST REVIEW! He did it! (I'm SO proud of him!!!) So, this is what my son told me about this book, and I wrote down word for word what he said to me, just like writing a review, so here is my "SON'S REVIEW" of this book! (He's pretty happy about this, too!) So, here is my son's review!
The Boy Who Flew With Eagles by Ben Woodard
A boy gets stolen by an eagle (but I didn’t get exactly how the eagle got the boy), but it takes him to his nest and the eagle says he’s going to eat him. The boy tells the eagle he could make many meals out of other foods instead of the eagle eating him and the boy does so by catching food for the eagle. The boy caught other fish and salmon for the eagle so he could eat.
The Eagle said humans are taking all the salmon, so the boy told the people in the village that humans must share the salmon with the eagles.
This story was easy to understand and I like shorter stories like this one. I’m 14 and think younger kids like 12 years old and younger will like this story a lot.
