If you love adventure, the thrill of a race, cold weather (!), and dogs you will enjoy following The Iditarod. This race pits teams of sled dogs on a race from Anchorage to Nome Alaska over 1150 miles of rugged, frozen, terrain. Stop in the Children's Room to select a book on Alaska or the race and follow the progress of the sled dog teams online. Check a blog written by a wonderful canine reporter who will put you close to the action.
