Hatchet - Gary Paulsen

Hatchet is a great book about Brian who ends up lost and alone in the woods. He learns how to survive and use resources until he is rescued. His time and adventures are something that many students would enjoy reading about.


I would use this book with an older elementary grade. Having students read this as a class or in a literature circle would be a good use for this book.
