Book #6

The next book I'm giving away is "Baby Island".  This book was my Mom's favorite when she was a little girl.  It proceeded to be a favorite of mine and is now a favorite of my own girls.

It's a short fiction novel about two young girls who are shipwrecked with four babies.  I mean, come on.  What young girl doesn't dream of being shipwrecked with four babies???  It is a sweet adventure story filled with surviving on clams and bananas and has been great as a read aloud.

I'm not sure that I could recommend this as a "boy's story" but young girls are sure to love it!
Leave a comment quickly!  I'll be drawing a winner first thing in the morning!

I obviously don't need to be in the drawing, but I couldn't help commenting on this book. You're WAS one of my all-time favorite books as a young girl. I don't think it will ever become a classic for its amazing writing techniques, but the story line is a universal winner for young girls. Like you said, what young girl wouldn't LOVE being stranded on an island, having to take care of babies. I can't count how many times I read and reread this book, but I do know my original copy is well worn and well loved. I hope whoever gets this has little girls to share it with!! --Mom
