Children's literature (chapter book) - What would you do if you were shipwrecked with four lively babies in the middle of the ocean? Grades 3-4.
This is the most memorable book from my childhood. It hooked me as a reader. I got in trouble for not getting to the dinner table on time. I stayed up reading under the covers with a flashlight. I ordered a copy once I was an adult and reread it. It's such an innocent book of a different time. I hope my granddaughter will want to read it and find the same joy I did, but in a world of instant communications and so much entertainment I don't know if kids today would enjoy it in the same way.
My thirteen y/o said an eight or nine y/o might like it more.
What would YOU do if you were shipwrecked with FOUR babies in the middle of the ocean? Personally i would scream! This book tells about hows two girls survived on an island with no adults and four babies!
Shipwrecked! For twelve-year-old Mary Wallace and her ten-year-old sister Jean, floating on the sea in a lifeboat seems more like a dream than reality-actually, more like a nightmare. But they're not the only survivors of the ocean liner, sunk on its way to Australia.
