Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
Island of the Blue Dolphins

srwitler, October 12, 2008

I read this book when I was in elementary school. I am now 50 years old and I still say that it was one of my favorite childhood books. My son gave me a book called "Reflections from a Mother's Heart" in which you are asked to write the answers to various questions, one of them being, "What were some of the most memorable books you read as a child?"
