My wife reads this with her six grade students each year to teach about Everest.

Great Book

Would you try another book from Roland Smith and/or Ramon De Ocampo?

Yes

In regards to the recording- it would be nice if we could choose which chapters to read. I had a hard time finding where my kids were because each class was in different places and there are no markers.
