this may be the best book for kids ever written it teaches young girls everything they will ever need to know in their resourceful lives how to build a fence out of whale bones, how to kill giant squids, how to alternately befriend and defend against scary wild dogs, and how to make skirts from cormorant feathers since i got kicked out of brownies and never got to learn All The Things That Girl Scouts Learn, this book taught me how to wilderness survive and now i live in queens so not much use f [...]

If this book just so happens to be one of your childhood favorites, and you notice my rating here, you may be asking yourself, Why must I forever be soiling all the things you hold dear Ah, that s a good question, and one that I often ponder myself But, in fairness, I didn t actually hate this story According to the GR ratings standards, two and a half stars means it was slightly better than Okay, but I can t quite say that I Liked it How bout I just say it was underwhelming and leave it at that [...]

When my defiant preteen daughter stands before me in great protest to any one of my many actions or words, she often resembles Disney s Pocahontas She has tan skin and black hair that touches her waist and dark eyes that are kept busy with a vigilant observance of the world s injustices and her mother s shortcomings If she s not on horseback, then she s standing before you, holding a cat or a small rodent or a dog Or a strange, stuffed chinchilla.So, when this middle child of mine received the I [...]

Back in the 70s and early 80s teachers liked to make their students cry, and so they forced them to read books like Island of the Blue Dolphins, which is just the kind of good old fashioned heartbreaking stuff to do the trick It starts of great this story of a Chumash local natives to the Santa Barbara, California area tribe taken by surprise by fur hunters and then taken from their island, accidentally leaving behind a brother and a sister There is sorrow a plenty The tale trots along, even ste [...]

Might I be bored, annoyed, or disgusted with Scott O Dell s many works from the viewpoints of young women If I read them now, sure, I might be.But I SWORE BY Scott O Dell when I was 10 12 years old, and I think that s what mattered The girls in the books spoke to me, and they were written for me then, not for the me that is now.I will buy his books for my younger cousins, and hope they get the sense of self and adventure that these short novels offer.

I never read Island of the Blue Dolphins as a child, although I m positive I wouldn t have liked it then either As everyone in Karana s tribe is evacuating the island, she looks back and realizes her little brother has been left behind She jumps out of the boat and swims back to the island, where they live there alone until her brother is killed After his death, she makes friends with an otter and one of the wild dogs that may or may not have killed her brother Of course, as the days turn into m [...]

Wanda s Summer Carnival of Children s Literature Well, this was a blast from the past I remember reading this probably several times during grade 5 or 6, maybe both Funny what I remember from those childhood readings my take away from it was that girls could do whatever they needed to and just as well as anyone else.Looking at it now through adult eyes, I see a lot of what the author was trying to do His wildlife conservation message is thump you on the head obvious to me now I can also admire [...]

man, fourth grade was a good year for reading this is another one, and fed my urge to be able to survive on my own even further this is beautiful because it s based on a true story she leaves the island with her skirt of cormorant feathers, which is on display at mission santa barbara and because she was alone for eighteen years, and hid from russians, and dealt with wild dogs, and the loss of her brother it is beautiful, haunting, and a story of survival it s also very much a story of californi [...]

You know a book will stay with you forever when you reread it after probably 20 years and still hear your elementary school librarian s voice in your head as you read it.

This book was freaking awesome I loved it when I was a kid All of the people on an island are leaving together one day, on a boat I don t remember why Anyhow, the main character s little brother got left behind on the shore What, they didn t think to do a head count before launching the boat She jumps off and swims back to be with him The boat apparently drives only forward, and not in reverse, or they are in a really big hurry I know this because they don t come back and get her or her brother.

This was the best book in my early elementary years I remember my first grade teacher, Mrs Hendrickson, reading it to us over the course of a few weeks in serial form I read it myself in third grade And now, out of nostalgia can you be nostaligic for your 8 10 year old self , I m re reading it I remembered it as the adventurous, though sad, life of a young girl Now it seems less about adventure and much about the heart breaking trials of a lonely girl, left alone and for dead.What the hell Now [...]

The first half of the book was very slow, almost to the point where I was bored, but I kept reminding myself of the audience for which it was written and pushed forward Karana s time alone on the island made me feel very sad I could really identify with her loneliness, especially when she tried to row her canoe to the mainland Nothing frightens me than the thought of being alone in a small vessel surrounded by endless miles of water, and I shared the fear which eventually caused her to turn bac [...]

Can I be honest I read this back in school, probably in 5th or 6th grade At least I think I did I just finished it at the age of 29 and I found myself fighting to get through it When I started it in June, I was excited but I couldn t keep up the enthusiasm past a few chapters It was incredibly boring It just plodded along and didn t get better How do middle grade children get through this book I don t think it s a classic because it truly failed to engage me The 2 stars are for the relationship [...]

One of the key elements for historical fiction authenticity is research Cohesive blending of facts and fiction along with atmosphere authenticity and delivery are also contributing factors So it s no wonder Scott O Dell won the John Newberry Medal for Island of the Blue Dolphins It s well written, brilliantly constructed, atmospheric, eloquently Spartan, fluid, and obviously well researched And thinking about the publishing date 1960 I m especially in awe in regards to O Dell s research and pres [...]

Reading a book for a second time, separated by 33 years is a curious thing I can recall the when and where of my first reading, and the basic plot, but the rest was just echos between the covers My daughter wanted to read this with me and I m glad that I re read an excellent work for young readers and had the opportunity to discuss the book with her And had I not read this for a second time I might not have learned that this story was based upon a real event a girl turned woman that was left on [...]

Time to catch up on reviewing books I actually read a few months ago I haven t read this since I was a child I didn t get much out of it then It s a beautiful book, but seemed frighteningly somber to me Also, I was and kind of still am all about dialogue, and the main character, Karana, spends several years completely alone on an island So I respected this book, but didn t feel any urge to reread it as a kid.I reread it as an adult because I ve been reading James Loewen s Lies My Teacher Told Me [...]

I enjoyed the story very much I am pretty sure I must have read it in school when I was much younger, but did not remember the story at all The dog s name, Rontu, did seem familiar I suspect that one of my daughters read it in grade school Imagine being completely alone on an island for 18 years The story is based on a real person and there was documentation about the time that she lived there all alone, until she was taken to the Mission at Santa Barbara, in California Mr O Dell told a very com [...]

First, let me clear that 2 star rating is for the story of the Brave girl of San Nicolas known as the lost girl of San Nicolas , not for this novel.The story is about a girl, who lived on an island, alone, for 18 years And this book is about her.Her story told by the author Scott O Dell in a very clumsy way Really the writing is so tedious that I spent 2 weeks to complete it And now I am disappointed, angry and sad.A story of a girl, who spent best part of her life youth being alone on an Island [...]
