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

    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! ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    Oh my! My children?s lit lovin? peeps! This! This book! Sharon Creech! It?s perfect! I need to read it again when I stop crying. Honestly! I was cackling my head off in the airport on the way here and crying my eyes out with love on the way out! What a mess I am! Review later! ...

    Summary (book jacket) Louie doesn't have the best luck when it comes to nurturing small creatures. So, when his father brings home a sickly newborn mini donkey, he's determined to save him. He names him Winslow. Taking care of him helps Louie feel closer to his brother, Gus, who is fa...

    This quiet read from Creech touches the heart of any animal lover. 10-year-old Louie was a premie. Just like Winslow, the miniature donkey. Louie takes right away to Louie, and nurses him to health. Only to have to make a decision he'd rather not have to make. Two side stories add ...

    #Partner #KLE ?BookReview?Thank you @KidLitExchange for a review copy of this book. All opinions are my own. ????? In Sharon Creech?s new middle grade novel (debuts 9/18), a young boy named Louie finds himself alone. His older brother Gus has gone off to war, his best f...

    Edelweiss provided me a DRC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was really excited to get an DRC of this one, because I loved last year's Moo. I adored the story of a girl and a cow, so I thought the story of a boy and a donkey would be just as enjoyable. And while t...

    SAVING WINSLOW is a truly heart-warming story of a boy befriending a sick mini donkey. Louie is used to his father bringing home fatally ill animals from his uncle?s farm. But when he father brings home a scrawny little donkey Louie is determined that Winslow (as Louie names him) wil...

    Louie sounds older than his 10 years (it?s an unusual kid to use the word ?unkempt?) but this is forgotten as you fall for him and his LGD, little gray donkey. Creech?s writing is straight forward, yet poetic at times. The undercurrent of the story?why care for something that...

    I received this as an eARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Louie does not have a great track record with keeping animals alive, but he is desperate to have a pet. When his uncle?s donkey gives birth to a sickly foal, Louie is determined to keep this creature ali...

    Readers of animal rescue books or sad-happy heart warmers by authors like Lisa Graff and Cynthia Lord will need to read Sharon Creech?s newest. With its short chapters and non threatening length, almost any 3rd-6th grader should be able to read this story of Louie and his big heart. ...

    I love Sharon Creech's writing... and this may be the book for all those kids who have lost pets .. I'm so on Louie's side since he tries to remain positive in 'nursing' Winslow back to health.. and for picking an animal like a 'mini' donkey as the animal of the book.. I really would h...

    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 ...

    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 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...

    Always a fan! ...

    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...

    This quiet read from Creech touches the heart of any animal lover. 10-year-old Louie was a premie. Just like Winslow, the miniature donkey. Louie takes right away to Louie, and nurses him to health. Only to have to make a decision he'd rather not have to make. Two side stories add ...

    SAVING WINSLOW is a truly heart-warming story of a boy befriending a sick mini donkey. Louie is used to his father bringing home fatally ill animals from his uncle?s farm. But when he father brings home a scrawny little donkey Louie is determined that Winslow (as Louie names him) wil...

    Louie sounds older than his 10 years (it?s an unusual kid to use the word ?unkempt?) but this is forgotten as you fall for him and his LGD, little gray donkey. Creech?s writing is straight forward, yet poetic at times. The undercurrent of the story?why care for something that...

    I received this as an eARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Louie does not have a great track record with keeping animals alive, but he is desperate to have a pet. When his uncle?s donkey gives birth to a sickly foal, Louie is determined to keep this creature ali...
