O'Dell tells the miraculous story of how Karana forages on land and in the ocean, clothes herself (in a green-cormorant skirt and an otter cape on special occasions), and secures shelter. Perhaps even more startlingly, she finds strength and serenity living alone on the island. This beautiful edition of Island of the Blue Dolphins is enriched with 12 full-page watercolor paintings by Ted Lewin, illustrator of more than 100 children's books, including Ali, Child of the Desert.

(Ages 9 to 12) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A thought-provoking story I am reading to my grade 3 and 4 students. The subject matter is far away from their own experiences, but it is helping them to connect and empathise.Published 16 days ago by Ginger Martin
