#NerdyBookClub Retro Review: Old Yeller by Fred Gipson

I read this book when I was in elementary school and decided to read it with my children. The ending is sort of revealed within the first pages which spares the reader in a way. I finally got teary in the end when Travis has a conversation with his dad about Old Yeller. What I mean is, things like that happen. That makes it all bad. You really get a sense of what life was like for this family with all their hard work and difficulties.

We liked the characters in the book, especially Travis. With Travis as the narrator, you feel his emotions as he tells the story and you can see his character grow as he matures tremendously in the little time his father is gone.

Our hardcover edition is a previous library copy in really good shape. Perfection Learning.
