Product Description
The Newberry Medal-winning story of a 12-year old girl who lives alone on a Pacific island after she leaps from a rescue ship. Isolated on the island for eighteen years, Karana forages for food, builds weapons to fight predators, clothes herself in a cormorant feathered skirt, and finds strength and peace in her seclusion. A classic tale of discovery and solitude returns to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for its 50th anniversary, with a new introduction by Lois Lowry.

Amazon Exclusive: A Letter from Lois Lowry on Writing the Introduction to Island of the Blue Dolphins, 50th Anniversary Edition

Dear Amazon readers,

Last summer, when I was asked to write an introduction to a new edition of Island of the Blue Dolphins, my mind went back in time to the 1960s, when my children were young and it was one of their best-loved books.

But a later memory surfaced, as well, of a party I was invited to in the summer of 1979. By now the kids were grown. I was in New York to attend a convention of the American Library Association, and Scott O'Dell's publisher, Houghton Mifflin, was honoring him at a reception being held at the St. Regis Hotel. I had never met Mr. O'Dell. But because of my own children I knew his books, and I was pleased to be invited to such an illustrious event.

I was staying at a nearby hotel and planned to walk over to the party. But when I began to get dressed, I encountered a problem. I was wearing, I remember, a rose-colored crêpe de Chine dress. It buttoned up the back. I was alone in my hotel room. I buttoned the bottom buttons, and I buttoned the top buttons, but there was one button in the middle of my back that I simply couldn’t reach. It makes me laugh today, thinking about it, picturing the contortions I went through in that hotel room: twisting my arms, twisting my back, all to no avail.

The clock was ticking. The party would start soon. I had no other clothes except the casual things I'd been wearing all day and which were now wrinkled from the summer heat.

Finally I decided, The heck with it. I left the room with the button unbuttoned and headed off. When I got in my hotel elevator, a benign-looking older couple, probably tourists from the Midwest, were already standing inside, and I explained my predicament politely and asked if they could give me a hand. The gray-haired man kindly buttoned my dress for me.

We parted company in the lobby of my hotel and off I went to the St. Regis, where I milled around and chatted with countless people, sipped wine, and waited for the guest of honor, Scott O'Dell, to be introduced. When he was, of course he turned out to be the eighty-one-year-old man who had buttoned my dress.

But wait! There's more. Ten years passed.

I had never seen Mr. O'Dell during the intervening years, but now, suddenly, we were the two speakers at a luncheon being held on a college campus somewhere. I think it may have been Vassar.

We sat next to each other at the head table, nibbling our chicken, chatting about the weather. I knew he wouldn't remember me, but I certainly remembered him, and I was secretly thinking that when it was my turn to speak, I might tell the audience the amusing little anecdote about the button on my dress.But he went first. And, eyes twinkling, he started his speech with "The last time I was with Lois Lowry, we were in a New York hotel. I was helping her get dressed."He was ninety-one at the time.All of this floated back into my mind when I found myself rereading, last summer, The Island of the Blue Dolphins. None of it was appropriate to the book's introduction, of course, and I went on to write, instead, about the power of the story and the magnificence of the writing. Not that anyone needed reminding! There has never been a question about Scott O'Dell's brilliance as a writer and storyteller.But it's nice to have a chance, here, to tell an audience that he was also a sweet and funny man.

5-0 out of 5 stars To say that this book holds up is an understatement
Some books that I read as a child are not so great to revisit as an adult.The Hardy Boys in particular age very badly, and the Hardy Boys knockoff "3 Investigators" fares even worse.

But Island of the Blue Dolphins ages beautifully.I hadn't read this book since I was a 4th grader in California, where this story is a kind of state myth.The true tale that it is based upon is a sad one, and whatever real adventures Juana Maria had during her 18 years alone on a 22 square mile piece of land.

As far as this story goes, the real history isn't that important.O'Dell makes Karana into a tragic and heroic figure, who masters life alone on the island but never embraces it.The tragedy that necessitated the evacuation of her people was shocking when I re-read it and circumstances of her being marooned were heart-wrenching.And her brother's horrific death LITERALLY THE NEXT DAY was awful.It says a lot that O'Dell can make a novel interesting without getting too much into the nitty gritty of survival, and keeping the reader completely within Karana's head the entire time.For the reader, the 18 years pass quickly and the book is over before I wanted it to be.

The emotional power of this book remains even to the hardened eyes of an adult, and revisiting it was an experience that I shall treasure.

5-0 out of 5 stars The first book I ever stayed up all night to read
I hid just outside the hall linen closet. I shared a room with my sisters, so I couldn't sit in there. So I took my blanket, and I turned on the light to the linen closet, cracked open the door, and sat there, cross-legged, reading until I saw the sun came up through the bathroom window.

This is the first book I ever stayed up all night to read. I was probably in 5th grade, maybe the summer heading into 6th grade. '78 or '79. I was entranced, transfixed. I loved to read, anyway, but this was the first book that captured my attention and imagination. That was thrilling and scary, heartwarming and heartbreaking. I could not put it down.

This book may be a classic, might have much to teach. But it is also very simply the amazing adventure of a courageous, self-sufficient girl.

It is a book I treasure. I still have my copy that I read that night in the hallway.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just as good as I remember from elementary school
I reread this because I remembered loving it when I was little and I was not disappointed reading it again!I'm kind of in love with it, and really what's not to love?You have a young girl alone on an island that is shaped like a dolphin fighting wild dogs while taming birds and otter and then you get to the author's note and find out it was based on a true story!!!How did I not remember that?

It was a quick read but I loved every second.It was strange to read the one part I remembered the most and how it was barely even a part of the story:

On the sixth day, when the storm had ended, I went to the place where the canoes had been hidden, and let myself down over the cliff.This part of the shore was sheltered from the wind and I found the canoes just as they had been left.The dried food was still good, but the water was stale, so I went back to the spring and filled a fresh basket.

The part that stuck with me was about the water.Reading this in elementary was the moment that I found out water didn't last forever, it became stale.This was such a shock to me that the image of the canoe with water baskets in it has stuck with me and it is what I think about anytime stale water comes up.I'm ashamed to say that the image in my head did change over the years and without my realizing what happened I switched out the baskets for plastic water jugs...come on Jess there's no plastic on the Island of the Blue Dolphins!

Basically read this book.It's like Snow White meets Hatchet, without prince charming or the creepy dead pilot in the plane that crashed in the water.Okay so clearly you know what part of Hatchet has been burned into my skull, and I couldn't stop thinking about Snow White and the animals that constantly follow her around.I'm not making this sound right, just read it.

This resource is directly related to its literature equivalent and filled with a variety of cross-curricular lessons to do before, during, and after reading the book. This reproducible book includes sample plans, author information, vocabulary building ideas, cross-curriculum activities, sectional activities and quizzes, unit tests, and ideas for culminating and extending the novel.Amazon.com Review
Scott O'Dell won the Newbery Medal for Island of the Blue Dolphins in 1961, and in 1976 the Children's Literature Association named this riveting story one of the 10 best American children's books of the past 200 years. O'Dell was inspired by the real-life story of a 12-year-old American Indian girl, Karana. The author based his book on the life of this remarkable young woman who, during the evacuation of Ghalas-at (an island off the coast of California), jumped ship to stay with her young brother who had been abandoned on the island. He died shortly thereafter, and Karana fended for herself on the island for 18 years.

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. A gripping story of battling wild dogs and sea elephants, this simply told, suspenseful tale of survival is also an uplifting adventure of the spirit. (Ages 9 to 12) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Blue Dolphin book review by scott o dell
This was a book from my childhood, my 2nd grade teacher read me this book over 40 years ago.I remember it today as if it was only yesterday, I ordered this book in took me back to my childhood, it was as interesting today as a man of 53 years of age as it was to that 2nd grader many years ago.It is a great book for not only children but for a parent also, a great read for parents or grandparents to a child.

5-0 out of 5 stars Island of the Blue Dolphins
I really enjoy reading this book, because it has to do with a girl learning how to survive on her own. Even though she was a village girl she did manage to teach her self everything a man would do, and she survived.

3-0 out of 5 stars A good read
This story is about a girl called Karana. She lived on an Island shaped like a Dolphin, hence called Dolphins' Island. When the Russians come to their Island for hunting Otters, they agree to part with half their share with the Island people as they would be hunting on their territory. But the Russians, while leaving, refuse to give the share and a fight breaks out between the 2 sides killing many people from the Island. Karana's father was the chief of the Tribe who was also killed.

When the new chief is appointed, he decides to move from the dolphin's Island to a near by Island where it would be more safe. But somehow during the moving process, Karana is left behind. She decides to wait for the next ship to come and take her to the Island. But seasons later, when no ship arrives, she decides to make the Island her home and do her best with whatever she can.

This story is her struggle with the nature's forces, with wild animals and most of all with loneliness. Karana has amazing courage and resilience. In spite of the adverse conditions she does not loose hope.

As an adult I enjoyed the story and the descriptions of the Island and the tribal customs. The story was interesting enough to pull me in. But I can see that children would find much more to love in this story. It could teach them morals and values without preaching. And a girl stuck on an Island, making the best of what she has got, making a hut, catching fish, building a boat could be appealing.

Overall, a good read. I am sad I didn't get a chance to read this as a child.

I found some really good information on Wikipedia. It was published in 1960 and won the Newbery Medal that year, and the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis in 1963. It is based on the true story of Juana Maria, the "Lone Woman of San Nicolas", a Nicoleño Indian marooned for 18 years on San Nicolas Island off the California coast before being rescued in 1853. ...

Anne McCaffrey is the quintessential writer of fantasy books pertaining to dragons.These books are always wonderful, well written, and perfectly characterized.All of her series are great but the ones that take place on Pern are the best of all.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Dolphins of Pern
Just reliving my reading the Pern books. Been over 38 years ago When I first read my first Pern Book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a book
At first blush, I was wondering whether this was a new book versusthe old one sitting on my bookshelf ,with the same title, about 2 feet from me. The Dolphins of Pern is a good book. Just remember when you see this MP3 CD is an audio book.
The paper book is much cheaper. Heck, you can't beat $4.00 for a Hardback including postage.

5-0 out of 5 stars Five stars for fans of the series.......
much less for those who are not.

There is a message from the author at the front of the book that states that she "...respectfully suggests that books in the Pern series be read in the order in which they were published....".There are twelve books in the series that precede this one so those new to the series begin with DRAGONFLIGHT not here, the more of the earlier novels a reader has missed the less they will enjoy this one.

This novel covers roughly the same time period as ALL THE WEYRS OF PERN and shares many of the same characters.The original landing site of the colonists has been discovered, including the computer, known as AIVAIS, which has supplied the Pernese with a wealth of information.One of the questions AIVAIS has raised was about the dolphins who had migrated to Pern with the original colonists.Over the intervening 2500 years the two sets of colonists, human and dolphin had lost contact despite the dolphins efforts.Contact was re-established though when a sudden storm caught a sailor and his passenger, the young son and heir to the local hold, by surprise and capsized their small craft.They were rescued by the dolphins, who were delighted to realize that the boy was willing to converse with them.When the boy, Readis, insisted that the dolphins spoke he was generally dismissed as a fanciful child even though the Pernese were quite familiar with human/dragon interaction.Over the years though Readis continued his relationship with the dolphins who came to have a dramatic impact on his life and the life of his planet.

This is a wonderful addition to the Pern saga but it is definitely not a 'stand alone' story.Anyone attempting to begin with this one will be completely lost.Even if certain novels have been missed, or read some time earlier certain points will not make much sense.Part of the attraction of this series is the depth and complexity of the plots and characters.McCaffrey has created an entire new world and society here, one that needs to be savored in it's entirety.

4-0 out of 5 stars ...they had remembered to remember...
So how do you follow up the fabulous All the Weyrs of Pern (Dragonriders of Pern Series), which told of the concerted, all-out efforts of Weyr, Hold, and Craft to finally, irrevocably eradicate Thread from the planet of Pern? THE DOLPHINS OF PERN is the next novel to catch us up with the folks of the present Pass (the 9th one), and, sucks to say, it just can't live up to the level of excitement, thrills, and just plain dazzle brought about by ALL THE WEYRS OF PERN. It certainly doesn't satisfy as much. But it's not bad, either. It's still written, after all, by one of the all-time storytelling greats in fantasy/science-fiction.

In THE DOLPHINS OF PERN, Anne McCaffrey chronicles the reconnecting of man and dolphin on Pern. As told in Dragonsdawn (Dragonriders of Pern Series), dolphins, genetically enhanced with the gift of speech, had numbered among the original colonists from Earth. In the early days of Pern's settlement, dolphin and man had formed a partnership and had begun to explore and map the oceans of Pern. But then the skies unexpectedly began to rain deadly silvery spores (called Thread), which devoured everything organic in their path.

Instantly, man's progress on Pern is halted, as Earth's descendants find themselves frantically fighting for survival against the onslaught of Thread. Vast chunks of time elapse. Down the centuries, technology falls on the wayside. And mankind forgets the dolphins. What remains are vague but countless myths of sea creatures called "shipfish" who rescue people from a watery grave. But no one really believes these tall tales.

But the dolphins haven't forgotten. And, more than 2500 years later, their unwavering vigil and faithfulness are rewarded, as man at last re-establishes contact with them. THE DOLPHINS OF PERN centers on three characters - Masterfisher Alemi (also Menolly's brother), the youthful and untested dragonrider T'lion, and Readis, the young son of Paradise River Holder Jayge and his wife Aramina. This novel focuses mostly on their momentous encounters with the intelligent, talking dolphins of Perns. The actions of these three people would have wide-ranging repercussions for the seafaring communities, both human and cetacean. Initially, Alemi and T'lion are the predominantly featured characters. Then, somewhere halfway thru the book, Readis, in his teenhood, takes over as the central figure.

But, as per usual, McCaffrey affectionately finds spots to guest star several of her most beloved characters. There are welcome sightings of Menolly, Masterharper Robinton, Jaxom & the white dragon Ruth, F'lar and Lessa, and even of Aivas. And, if you're a fan of Jayge and Aramina fromThe Renegades of Pern (Dragonriders of Pern Series) (I'm not), well, they're here, too. Be warned, however, that Aramina comes off as unlikeable here. THE DOLPHINS OF PERN at first runs concurrent with the historic events in ALL THE WEYRS OF PERN, but then eventually moves three years beyond. So, for those who've wondered at the immediate impact of the Aivas years, this book does the job. In fact, one benefit of the overlapping of stories is that we get to see the stunned reactions of the Paradise River residents toward a tragedy which happens in the final pages of ALL THE WEYRS OF PERN.

There's also an annoying subplot involving Lord Toric, a recurring character throughout the Pern series who forever is conniving up ways to snap up more land and more power. Here, he's up to his old tricks and the Dragonriders of Pern have to once again stomp on him good and hard. Betcha Toric doesn't learn his lesson...

THE DOLPHINS OF PERN is a good read, and, if you're into dolphins, it's a damn good read. McCaffrey portrays them as intelligent and playful and cute as hell. If these sea creatures don't win you over, then you just may be dead inside. McCaffrey also does well to show the doubts and even dismissal felt by the humans regarding the "shipfish" and their status as a legitimate intelligent life. The telling moment may have been the healer Persellan's cranky conversion as he comes from regarding dolphins as waste-of-time nuisances to finally accepting them as viable patients. It isn't too long before the sea-going folk learn that the dolphins can be summoned via a bell (reviving an old tradition) and thus avail themselves of reports on weather, sea hazards, and the best fishing sites. Dolphins also have sonar, which allows them x-ray capability with which to assist the healer halls. But just as man can now again depend on the dolphins for aid and information, it's a reciprocal deal. The dolphins also have their needs and, thru the same bell, can now also call on man.

The book has a natural, episodic feel. Even though the reader is aware of the all consuming project to rid Pern of Thread, it's a plot that isn't central to the main storyline. So, with regards to the dolphins, there isn't one specific, overwhelming jeopardy to get your juices flowing. There is, however, a monster of a storm which disastrously affects the coasts of Pern and inadvertently puts Readis on a life-changing path.

Anne McCaffrey knows how to entertain you, knows how to warm your heart. The plight of the dolphins and the sheer span with which they've kept faith and went about their duties to man - if that doesn't smack you in your emotional core, well, again, I'm pulling the "dead inside" card. McCaffrey is such a natural storyteller that I ate up even her description of the characters' day-to-day minutiae. The leading characters are ones we're not that familiar with, going into the story. McCaffrey has written of Alemi and little Readis before, although not in great detail. T'lion is a new character. Personally, I found myself liking the unassuming Alemi and T'lion, especially T'lion, whose personal conflicts involve his untested status (he's too young to fight Thread) and his jealous older dragonrider of a brother (T'lion had impressed a bronze, his brother a mere brown). I'm mostly lukewarm towards Readis, who, to me, just isn't that interesting. And, concerning his act of rebellion, Menolly did that first, and a long time ago. However, my favorite new character here is Theresa, who doesn't appear until the book's almost over. But she sure has a presence about her... ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Leave out the evolution
I love this book except the one thing that made me hate it.And, that was the evolution.Non-fiction books like to present evolution as fact instead of theory.The truth is that no one really knows what happened 50 million years ago.To suggest that dolphins were once land creatures that walked upright and had hands and legs is a bit too much for me.The book makes it seem like anyone who is anyone knows that it is truth.Really??I don't know that.You don't know that. It would have been a great book if they had offered any other opinion than that one.Of course, that would not be politically correct.I won't be ordering this book for our school system, and I will review all other Magic Tree House non-fiction research guides as well.It is a shame because we were going to purchase them all.

And, scientists give me a hard time for believing in a man who died and rose again for the forgiveness of my sins.Please.

4-0 out of 5 stars Dolphins as seen by people
This book nicely portrays dolphins as seen by people.For a very different perspective, some readers (mature teens, adults) will enjoy Ocean Echoes:A Dolphin Tale by Shaney Frey, which portrays dolphins from their perspective, with only occasional and perhaps more realistic interactions with humans.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
By Olivia Cassady

This book is about a man who is a diver and how he helps a baby dolphin.One day he was diving when he saw three dolphins swimming toward him.He didn't know what they wanted at first, but a couple minutes after, he realized that they wanted help.He knew that he was short of supplies, but he did what he could do to help them.There was a fishhook in the baby's tail so the diver got out a knife and tried to cut the string.Then, the next thing he did was to get the fishhook out of the baby's tail.The baby was saved, but then three ugly sharks came swimming toward them!The father shark tried to avoid them while the others swam up to the surface for safety.They escaped the sharks and said goodbye to the man.So, from that moment on the man believed that he would see them again.This is a great book about man and dolphin.I recommend that you read it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Dolphin Adveture A True Story

Dolphin Adventure A True Story is about a diver named Wayne Grover and how he helps a dolphin family.He was diving one day and a wild dolphin family came to him.Wayne saw that the baby dolphin was hurt.He helped get the hook out of the dolphin's flesh.

Then, sharks attacked.After the battle and the sharks were far away, the hook was out.Then, the dolphins swam away.Wayne wondered what would happen to the baby dolphin.Would the baby get tracked down and eaten by sharks, would it bleed to death, or would it survive?To find the answer read this book.

I liked this book because it is something that really happened and you would always wonder what is going to happen next.I also liked the fact that it had dolphins and humans working together, and that Wayne Grover helped a dolphin.I would give this book 5 stars.This book is exciting, sad, curious, and happy all at the same time.This book would be good for ages 7 and up.If you like books about dolphins or adventures this book is for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars What does it mean to be "human?"
You have no memory of humanity.You've lived with dolphins your entire existence, according to your memory.You know you are different, but so is a dolphin missing a flipper.Life isn't idyllic; sharks, giant squid, thirst, hunger, poisonous fish, and orcas are all to be faced, everyday, and you have the experiences, and scars, to prove it.

Then, you are "rescued."You have value, not because you are a very rare example of a "feral person," but really because you speak... dolphin.

This happens to Mila.She begins to learn the human language, our culture.But walls?Locks?Deception?She pines for her dolphin family, but also cares for her adopted human family who care for her as part of a federal research project.

Author Karen Hesse writes in a style of an awakening for Mila, from a conscious being engaged in the sea to an aware and articulate teenager, who suddenly understands what she has lost, and gained.

A similar experience happened to a young boy named Tarzan, as I remember.

Easy to read, with a lingering flavor that begs for another book to tell more of Mila's life.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother...
My son had to read this book at school (5th grade). He is an avid reader, and he reads all kind of books: Tolkien, Alan Garner, O'Henry, the list can go on an on. He almost hated this book. The unrealistic plot, the main character he could not connect with, the things he was supposed to see in the book, everything felt like a fake.

4-0 out of 5 stars Artistically -- meant to be read aloud !
There are many ways to discuss, appreciate & analyze this book.A lot of it is busily going on here among the reviews.I have been reading it to my fifth grader (boy) as a bedtime story.At first I had my doubts about the style, thinking it was perhaps dubiously precious or overly self-conscious.It is in fact pure poetry.Very interesting.

I don't think my son considers it verse, the way he enjoys Richard Scarry's Nursery Rhymes or Dr. Seuss.I think he likes it for the simple and straightforward progress of the words.It is easy for him to follow, and he hasn't been falling asleep on me.

So it works for both of us.Because it is so deceptively simple, I think one might read it too fast if one were not reading it aloud.Give it a try if you have the chance.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Guide to Whales
My wife and I are planning to go to Alaska and hope to do some whale watching.This book is a great guide to identification of the various whales we hope to see.It is not too wordy in descriptions but gives enough information for the identification of the various types of whales and other sea mammals.

5-0 out of 5 stars Even an artist needs this type of book!
Fisrt of all, I believe this is the exact same book as "Whales, dolphins, and porpoises. It is great book. I'm a marine life artist, so I needed a book like this one to study the scientific anatomy of each animal in details in order to get them down the right way realistically on canvas. It's the best way I can think of to make the animals as real and as beautiful or magnificent as they truly are in reality. It's hard to find a book that has even photos of each and every whale, dolphin, or porpoise there is in the world. This one little field guide has them all. It's great. So many! I also can learn about them if I decide to go whale watching some day! This book tells just about everything about each animal. Anything you would want to know. If I do go whale watching I'lltake the book with me! Yes, believe it or not, even an artist needs this type of book!

overall the book is a great guide to identifying whales and dolphins.one thing about the book that i am not so happy about is the small text size.

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible
From the great illustrations and quick-reference title bar that includes taxonomic, habitat and population information, to the range maps and behavioral information, this book was such a steal. I received this book shortly before starting cetacean surveys in the south pacific and it was an incredible source of information. I have used many field guides and, although I never tested its 'water-proofness", it is simultaneously concise yet complete. It not only gives identification keys for individual species, but also keys to identifying individual animals. If you are a teacher, student, biologist or enthusiast, get it, wherever you are in the world.

I read a book called Dolphins.I like this book, and I love dolphins.We should help them because they could die.

Humans give them the wrong food, and the oil in the ocean is making them sick. Dolphins need your help to save them. Dolphins is an excellent book and you can learn new things. They are magnificent because you can ride on their fins. Dolphins eat fish. Dolphins make funny noises, and they like to play. Most people like dolphins. Butsome people don't.

Dolphins! (Step into Reading, Step 3)
Another good Step Into Reading book. Plenty of information at just the right level for my boy. This one is a little dated but it is still useful for children. I am glad they included the part about how fishermen kill dolphins when they catch tuna. It tells about how children became activists and campaigned to change fishing techniques by boycotting Tuna. This is the kind of thing kids need to hear about. It lets them know they can make an impact on the world.

4-0 out of 5 stars Juneau 2nd grader
Do you like dolphins? If you like dolphins, this would be a good book. It has many facts, like dolphins can dive 500 feet under water without coming up for air. Dolphins can do a flip in the air. Is that cool or what? Did you know that some river dolphins are completely pink?
I like this book because there are great pictures of dolphins. First, second or third graders would enjoy reading this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Step Into Reading level 3: Dolphins: Great book, but not the best level
You can call me StoryMaker. Step into Reading: Dolphins is a great book that teaches how dolphins are intellegent and have their own personalities. It's a great book, but they rate it level 3. Step into Reading's level 3 seems too easy for a level 3. More like a level 2. Of course, SIR has lots of levels, but people might think that it will help their 2nd grader read. It probably won't. Overall, a great book about dolphins' reactions with people, but remember, it might not be as challenging as you suspected. Signed, StoryMaker. "Gotta trust the kid's review!" ... Read more

Product Description
The heart-pounding companion to the #1 ChildrenÂ’s Book Sense Pick The White Giraffe.

Just as Martine is settling into life at Sawubona, the wildlife game reserve, with her grandmother and Jemmy, her white giraffe, she must leave for two weeks on a school trip off the coast of South Africa. What begins as an exciting sea adventure quickly turns perilous when Martine and five of her classmates are thrown overboard into shark-infested waters. They are saved by a pod of dolphins only to end up marooned on a deserted island. The castaways, at odds with one another, must figure out not only how to survive, but how to save the dolphins that have mysteriously beached themselves on the islandÂ’s shore.

In a gripping tale of courage, friendship, and survival, Martine uses her healing gift and her bushcraft to help humans and animals alike. Look for Martine on the big screen—The White Giraffe will soon be made into a major motion picture from Walden Media and Twentieth Century Fox, starring Anna Sophia Robb. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great eco-mystery!
Dolphin Song is the second installment in Lauren St. John's series that begins with The White Girafe; it is set in Africa and combines elements of mystery with environmental activism in a way that will appeal to middle school readers, especially girls.The young, female protagonist has a special bond with animals.She and her side-kick, a scrappy and intelligent native boy, experience quite an adventure after being washed overboard on a school trip to see the sardines run.Their sojourn on an uninhabited island with unpleasant classmates echoes the themes explored in Lord of the Flies in a manner more suitable to the pre-high school audience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised
My daughter received this book as a gift from her teacher. After reading the synopsis I thought 'How boring' but I began reading the book out of boredom and was pleasantly surprised. The friendship between Martine and Ben was very well expressed and enjoyable. Also Martine's power was fascinating. I now want to read The White Giraffe. This is one of the best middle grade books I have ever read.

5-0 out of 5 stars beautiful story for animal lovers of all ages
In this sequel to The White Giraffe, eleven year old Martine is just adjusting to life with her grandmother and her beloved white giraffe, Gemma, when she leaves on a school field trip to study ocean life off the coast of Mozambique.She and five classmates are thrown overboard by a storm at sea and saved by a pod of dolphins, who carry them on their backs to a deserted island.The kids, who have to learn to get along in order to survive, discover the island seems to be booby-trapped underwater, and dolphins are mysteriously beaching themselves.The children must solve a mystery to save the dolphins and themselves.
This is another beautiful story from this author, perfect for tween girls and animal lovers of all ages.Martine's unique gift with animals is very moving, and the author, who lived in Africa, does a wonderful job describing the African setting.

5-0 out of 5 stars Audiobook version review - Loved it!
Dolphin Song is a conservation minded adventure story featuring Martine - an orphaned girl who lives on a game reserve in South Africa.Martine, whose best friend is a white giraffe named Jemmy, enjoys spending as much time with animals as her classmates.Martine is afraid however of sharks and frets with worry when her class plans a trip on a boat to visit the sardine migration off the coast.A ship wreck plunges Martine and her classmates into the sea and a living nightmare, but the children are magically rescued and brought to shore by a group of dolphins.The story then focuses on the disparate group's survival attempts as castaways on an island.

Dolphin Song narrator Adjoa Andoh's English accent adds to the exotic flare of this adventure tale.She voices children and adults with equal ease and believability.She manages to propel fear and suspense into the novel once the children are cast at sea.Animal lovers will also enjoy the tale's tidbits of information on animal behavior.

Hello riddle solvers!

This book is another great adventure by Mary Pope Osborne. Jack and Annie are brother and sister. In Dolphins at Daybreak they have to solve a riddle to help a friend.

A magic tree house takes them to a sunny beach. On the case, they come across a shark, but two dolphins save them.

This book feels magical. Once you start reading, you can't stop. This book is great because it is very detailed. If you like to solve riddles, and fun little facts, this book was made just for you. Have a great time reading this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book, and a fine addition to a great series
The magic tree house is back, and with it is Morgan le Fay. She has a quest for Jack and Annie, they must solve a strange riddle. And so, the two youngsters are off to a tropical island, where they learn about the sea and its aquatic life.

This book is the ninth in Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House series, and the first in a four-part mini-series. This is a fun book, richly illustrated, and teaching while at the same time entertaining. I think that this is a great book, and a fine addition to a great series.

5-0 out of 5 stars True magic
I am new to tarot reading. I was very hesitant and fearful at first. I was drawn to these cards because I really have a fascination with mermaids. Since I was a little girl, i've always had a special place in my heart for mermaids!!! The readings are beyond accurate. I did 10 readings, circling the same question worded differently, and i got the same exact answer. I pulled out the same card OVER and OVER again! It was surreal how consistent these cards are. I feel very drawn to them, and treat them with respect. I notice I do a better reading if i listen to music and ease my mind then when im upset or frustrated and need a quick guidance. These cards are beautiful, the artwork in them is so stunning and magical. It makes me feel like I did when I first heard about mermaids for the first time as a little girl. I hope to use them more. What a beautiful deck.

5-0 out of 5 stars Enchanting, beautiful, and astoundingly accurate
These cards are so delicious to look at you will want to live in this world. A good oracle deck captures your imagination, and these are certainly captivating. Kudos to the artists of the deck, and too to Doreen Virtue who consistently gives those of us who love a variety of cards something to delight in consistently. Don't let the whimsical nature of this deck fool you however. I always choose this deck when the subconscious is involved, and the client needs to access their creative capacities. The cards are ALWAYS amazingly right on, and always to the surprise of myself and those receiving the reading. The response is "How can these cards illustrate EXACTLY what we were just talking about?" But they always do. Time and time again. I hope these will be a time tested favorite of yours as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Messages from the Ocean
I have wanted these cards for years...and I recently bought them and I'm very glad.I also own the Goddess cards which are the best!These are different... with positive and helpful messages - they are more fun and it is nice to pull a card every day.I would recommend them to anyone who feels a connection to the ocean.

2-0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to love this deck...
but, I just couldn't. At the time I only owned the Healing with the fairies deck and since I absolutely adored them I had a lot of excitement upon purchasing this set because I love the ocean and am a fan of mermaids but to my disappointment the deck it's self is borderline childish, The artwork was very inconsistent - in fact some of it was down right cheesy. Although, there were a few VERY beautiful cards those few cards alone couldn't support this set's short comings - these cards weren't made the same as the first two sets(healing with the Faries and healing with the Angels.) they were made on stiffer stock paper which made them harder to shuffle and they had a clear coating on them that over time pealed off which tore away some of the images on them and the cards began to get horrible creases and bends in them.

I am however hoping she releases a second deck of mermaids made in the same fashion as her more newer sets like magical messages from the fairies, or even the Archangel Oracle Cards. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My sons are fascinated with the baby dolphin
My little sons go into full-time protective mode about the baby dolphin in this book.They act out protecting an injured dolphin and ramming a shark with their heads (I had to steer them toward pretending a pile of blankets was the shark, instead of the coffee table -- it's a softer bang for their heads)They also picked up the information that dolphins swim by moving their tails (flukes) in an up-and-down motion.This is hard to act out on the floor, but when summer comes, they can do it in the pool.This is a great book for information and for pretending.

5-0 out of 5 stars 6 year old asked for this book for Christmas
My daughter checked this out of her school library and then asked for the book for Christmas. The pictures remind me of the kind that most books had in the 70's. Meaning just black, blue and yellow...and of course green when they mix. I never would have picked this out for her but I think it is the story that intrigues her so much. Mothers and their babies are facinating to little girls. She now knows so much about dolphins from such a simple little book. Glad Amazon had it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Enthralled 5-year old
I gave this to my son who is reading, but at times needs to be encouraged to practice reading.While expecting him to only read a few pages, he asked to read the whole book.He was also excitedly relating various plot points and information about dolphins.Anything that can get him excited about reading is great, and it has the added bonus of teaching him facts about dolphins.

5-0 out of 5 stars breastfeeding dolphins!
This is a beautiful book, and very pro breastfeeding!

It is a beginner reader (level 3), but it is a lovely story to read to a smaller child/baby. I bought this book for my eldest child to read because she loves dolphins, I had no idea that it was such a pro breastfeeding book!

I highly recommend it!

It is a wonderful story about the daily life of a pod of dolphins, in particular a mama dolphin that gives birth. The baby is born and mama takes him to the surface for air then nurses him. He is nursed several more times throughout the book, with very positive points about mama's milk being the best for him.

In the end the 6 month old dolphin has a run in with a shark, and gets his fin very slightly injured, what makes him all better???? MAMAS MILK!

The story finishes by saying that he will continue to nurse until he is a year old and then spend a long happy life with his mama and the other pod dolphins.

The book is nicely illustrated and has two pictures of the dolphin nursing and one of him being born!

hope you will enjoy it!

4-0 out of 5 stars great book for an ocean study
Dolphin Talk is a lively and very kid-friendly book with cheerful illustrations that kids will enjoy and learn from.The book teaches us that dolphins are a lot like humans.They communicate by clicking sounds and echolocation,instead of words like we do.The book is part of the Let's Read and Find out science series.

This story is a great book for kids who are intersted in dolphins.The information is presented in a kid friendly way making it easy for young children to grasps the concept of echolocation.

I recommend this book to parents and teachers of kids ages 5-9.This book would make a great read aloud during an ocean unit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dolphin Talk- Whistles Clicks and Clapping Jaws
In this beautifully written Read and Find Out,by Wendy Pfeffer, readers discover how dolphins communicate.Ms. Pfeffer sets the scene by telling us the dolphin's underwater world is alive with sound; crashing waves, crackle of snapping shrimp, songs of humpbacks, the shrieks of killer whales. In lively language we learn how they whistle at one another - the mother's whistle so distinctive that her child recognizes it at once and whistles back! Pfeffer explains carefully how the dolphin communicates in the dark, with clicks from its airsacs to its melon,(located on the head)And children will delight to hear that naughty dolphins are disciplined by mother shaking her head up and down. Dolphin Talk is a perfect read before a trip to the ocean, to the aquarium,and anytime one wants to find out about sea creatures!A Bucks County School Librarian ... Read more
