   Son loved this
For my third grader, I bought this book. He selected it based on its nomination of Maude Hart Lovelace. He enjoyed the book and said he would recommend it to others.
   Adorable book that made my daughter love reading every page!
My 10 year old hates reading, though she is really good at it. She reads 2 12 grades above her primary school level. She died from the mundane books assigned by her teacher. Her teacher then told her to purchase or borrow this book from the library, and my daughter LOVED this book! Thank you Sharon for writing a book that my daughter actually fell in love with!
   My 9 year old son loved it.
My child loves animals and has a big heart, so he fell in love with the story. I heard him say, Awww, several times while reading, I heard him giggle and I may have seen a little tear a time or two. We will definitely read more from this author!
   Really cute story
I really liked this story I bought three different books, from the same author, after If you like to read stories of love for animals, their bonds with humans and reminders to think positive '', then this is a grab for you and yours. I really liked the development of each character in this book '' and I feel that many teens can relate to these characters, as well.
   My 9 Years old boy loves this book so much.
My son, who prefers to read the dishes than to wash this book, loves reading it. It is perfect for the 4th grader and children who love animals. He also told me that he will read it 3 times.
   Nice story.
Quick read : I realize that it was not written for adults, but it was a tad on the boring side. My 9 - year old daughter really liked the book. She said that it is one of her favorites.
   You will fall in love with a donkey...Winslow!
Sharon Creech always writes books that appeal to children, parents and teachers. She did it with a book called Moo and now with Saving Winslow. This year I will use this one in my presentations.
   Another Winner!
An outstanding book for the growth mindset as well. Would also make a wonderful read aloud for younger students.
   Loved it!
Sharon Creech's Saving Winslow is a Heartprint book that is told masterfully. And while this is a story about saving a donkey, Creech has woven so much more. It is a story about a boy who struggles to find his purpose, a girl who is afraid to love and a family that misses a son who is away serving our country. I highly recommend ''.
