What Kind of Book is My Side of the Mountain

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader
4.5 / 7.0

I’m not a camper—I’m more what you’d call “indoorsy:—but when I read this book in fourth grade, it made me want to run away and live in a tree. It was a fun story, and sparked a lot of imaginative daydreams about living in the wild. I think it’s perfect for older elementary school or middle school readers.
