Book Review of Island of the Blue Dolphins

Island of the Blue Dolphins
Helpful Score: 1

This is a good historical novel of a differnt type than the usual historical fiction. It is based on a true story about a girl who was stranded without her tribe when Vikings came and attacked her village, taking slaves with them. She a strong young girl, very inspiring to read about with your daughters. There is a teachable follow up for "homeschoolers" or "afterschoolers" because you can research the girls history. Try an internet search, and include the term "California".
