Island of the Blue Dolphins

An adventurous survival story. I think it's amazing that she kept herself alive by building shelter, finding food, and fighting wild dogs. It's a lot like a growing up story, AGAIN! Why are so many Newberys growing up stories? I did like it, though.

Rating: *****


  1. I remember loving this one as a child but not when I read it as an adult. Maybe because there are soooo many books about growing up!

  2. Even though I didn't read it, my friend Lucy told me ALOT about and how much she loved. I'm considering reading it.

  3. I read this book and it seemed amazing how she survived by creating shelter and finding food on her own,like you said laura.
