Library Lover Book of The Day #1

February is Library Lover Month... As well as Black History Month, Adopt A Rescue Rabbit Month, American Heart Month.. Etc. (http://womeninbusiness.about.com/od/diversityeventcalendars/a/nat-month-feb.htm) SO in spirit of Library Lover Month (which I am) I am going to write a blog EVERYDAY (or at least try to).

I choose to start day one of LL:BOTD with Island of the Blue Dolphins, because It is a book most kids will read at LEAST once in school. I cannot even count how many times I have read this book and although it isn't a book I particularly love it is a cute book to read.

The book is a true story about an Indian girl name Wonapalei or her secret tribe name Karana who lives on an island off the coast of California. Karana's tribe leaves the island, but Karana decides to stay. Her brother Ramo and her have to fend for themselves learning how to build shelter and hunt food. The book sums up 18 years of her life on the island until she is eventually rescued. Island of the Blue Dolphins is a Newberry winning Children's book, however it has a very mature tone to it, making it appealing to all ages.

Currently Reading: Girls of Murder City By Douglas Perry
