    This is Robinson Crusoe for Girls

    We just finished reading Baby Island for the third time; this time my 2nd grade daughter was the reader. I loved this book and cannot recommend it more. If you know a girl who loves adventure, this is the book for her. It is charming and full of courage and wit.

    I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!

    I have it in a soft cover version and could read it all day. It is a great book for all ages and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good adventure story that's a little bit different.

    CHILDHOOD FAVORITE!!

    I read and re-read this book more than any other as a kid...I never wanted it to end!How IDYLLIC...for a 10 year old girl-(me)-to be shipwrecked and PARENTLESS on an island with four BABIES!I always remembered the way they so carefully tried to keep track of which twin was which.I believe it was this book that made me crazy for babies and steered me into child-oriented fields.Love it.
