    Review closer to release date, but. . .this is Sharon Creech. You're already heading away from this post to pre-order. I won't keep you any longer. ...

    I wanted to love this so much more. I feel like, much like a tiny premature donkey, I wanted this story to get fatter as it went along, but it just felt too light, to short. Some heavy topics were brought up, but then just sort of pushed away again. I feel like, even for a book for you...

    So great to have a new Sharon Creech novel out in the world. Sweet, heart-felt story. ...

    A tender story about a boy who raises a tiny donkey. Perfect for elementary students. ...

    I thought this was a better showcase for Creech?s formidable talents than some of her other recent books. Maybe a shade too ?literary? at times, but I think both broadly appealing and unsurprisingly masterful. ...

    Saving Winslow by Sharon Creech is a heartprint book that is masterfully told. And, while this is a story about saving a donkey, Creech has woven in so much more. It is a tale about a boy who struggles to find his purpose, a girl who?s afraid to love for fear of loss, and a family wh...

    A heartwarming story of a young donkey, the boy who is determined to save him, and the way in which small things can sometimes have the biggest impact. Lyrical and sweet, Saving Winslow is a simple but touching story for young and middle-grade readers. When Louie is given another o...

    What a sweet read! Sharon Creech has done it again. Louie?s Dad brings home an orphaned donkey and Louie volunteers to raise it despite everyone telling him that the donkey may not make it. Nora, a neighbor girl, won?t even touch the donkey because she is afraid Winslow is in for a...

    I find it nothing short of incredible that Sharon Creech continues to pack so much heartfelt emotion and incredible life lessons into a short-ish space. I have fallen in love with Winslow, Louie, and Nora and I know my students will, too. What a pleasure to read this summer morning. ...

    Sharon Creech is always able to pack so many things to talk about in her books in a smaller number of pages than most. She's that wonderful with words. ...

    Sigh! Louie and Winslow won my heart. Lovely! ...

    I know some reluctant readers who would be smitten by this story ...

    Louie has never had success with raising animals, but he decidedly takes on the mission to nurse a newborn donkey to health. His friend Nora, who has experienced difficult losses of her own, finds it hard to get close to Winslow. This is a wonderful story for children who love animals....

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus When his somewhat irresponsible Uncle Pete's miniature donkey is ailing and gives birth prematurely, Louie's mother and father let Louie try to nurse the baby back to health, warning him the whole time that it is likely the animal won't make it. Since L...

    When his father brings home a sickly, half-dead baby donkey in the middle of winter, Louie, who has not had luck keeping things alive like goldfish, worms and bugs, is determined to do whatever it takes to save it. Suffering the loss of his brother, Gus, who recently joined the army, h...

    I can't imagine any reader not being a fan of Sharon Creech's books, but this latest is ideal for independent young readers and for use in classrooms. I'm a fan of read aloud novels in class, but particularly of high quality SHORT novels, allowing many more to be read over the course o...

    When Louie?s dad brings home a newborn orphaned donkey, Louie is immediately smitten and volunteers to take care of him. The thing is though, Louie has a terrible track record when it comes to caring for small creatures. As in a zero percent success rate. He?s an enthusiastic and l...

    Louie (10) hasn't done a great job of taking care of pets in his lifetime. A few of his pets that have died or went missing were a snake, hamster, goldfish, and lizard. One day Louie's dad brings home a weak, orphaned mini-donkey from his Uncle Pete's farm. He knows that his luck with ...

    There's something nostalgic about reading a Sharon Creech novel. I've used so many of her books as mentor texts in the classroom. I place her alongside Spinelli as an all-time favorite. Saving Winslow shows she's still got it. When you're a master of your craft, you don't need 350+ pag...

    A short but lovely tale of a boy and his donkey. Louie is a winsome hero... gentle yet determined that nothing bad will happen to his precious Winslow. Pessimistic and prickly Nora is an excellent foil for the optimistic Louie, but she's likable just the same. Recommended for fans of b...

    Book #74 Read in 2018 Saving Winslow by Sharon Creech This is a sweet, cute read, geared towards middle school readers. Louie takes over the care of a poor, pitiful donkey that he names Winslow. He bottle feeds him, takes care of him, sleeps by him and hopes that Winslow will make ...

    Sharon Creech makes every word count. I found myself rereading chapters to slow down and appreciate the writing perfection. Starts strong, finishes strong. I would read the first page as my book talk. A beautiful cover. I?ve been mighty generous with my stars this week. Maybe fall...

    There's something nostalgic about reading a Sharon Creech novel. I've used so many of her books as mentor texts in the classroom. I place her alongside Spinelli as an all-time favorite. Saving Winslow shows she's still got it. When you're a master of your craft, you don't need 350+ pag...

    A short but lovely tale of a boy and his donkey. Louie is a winsome hero... gentle yet determined that nothing bad will happen to his precious Winslow. Pessimistic and prickly Nora is an excellent foil for the optimistic Louie, but she's likable just the same. Recommended for fans of b...

    A tender story about a boy who raises a tiny donkey. Perfect for elementary students. ...

    Saving Winslow by Sharon Creech is a heartprint book that is masterfully told. And, while this is a story about saving a donkey, Creech has woven in so much more. It is a tale about a boy who struggles to find his purpose, a girl who?s afraid to love for fear of loss, and a family wh...

    Sharon Creech is always able to pack so many things to talk about in her books in a smaller number of pages than most. She's that wonderful with words. ...

    Book #74 Read in 2018 Saving Winslow by Sharon Creech This is a sweet, cute read, geared towards middle school readers. Louie takes over the care of a poor, pitiful donkey that he names Winslow. He bottle feeds him, takes care of him, sleeps by him and hopes that Winslow will make ...

    Sharon has such a way with words. This is a sweet story that means so much more than just taking care of a donkey. There's grit, love, understanding, and compassion. Students will love to read this and will be rooting for Winslow and Louie from start to finish, and by the end, they wil...

    Such a sweet little read. I loved the characters, the donkey, and how everything came together in the end. ...

    Saving Winslow by Sharon Creech is a heartprint book that is masterfully told. And, while this is a story about saving a donkey, Creech has woven in so much more. It is a tale about a boy who struggles to find his purpose, a girl who?s afraid to love for fear of loss, and a family wh...

    What a sweet read! Sharon Creech has done it again. Louie?s Dad brings home an orphaned donkey and Louie volunteers to raise it despite everyone telling him that the donkey may not make it. Nora, a neighbor girl, won?t even touch the donkey because she is afraid Winslow is in for a...

    I find it nothing short of incredible that Sharon Creech continues to pack so much heartfelt emotion and incredible life lessons into a short-ish space. I have fallen in love with Winslow, Louie, and Nora and I know my students will, too. What a pleasure to read this summer morning. ...

    Sharon Creech is always able to pack so many things to talk about in her books in a smaller number of pages than most. She's that wonderful with words. ...
