Week Eleven of My #SummerofVintageKidLit – Baby Island!
Last week we read Henry and the Paper Route, and you can read my quick recap in the comments of this post 🙂
This week, we’re reading Carol Ryrie Brink’s “Baby Island.” I have been discovering Carol Ryrie Brink’s delightful novels for the past few years, and I particularly enjoyed her wildly funny and sweet “Two Are Better than One” from 1968. So it is with great anticipation that I begin “Baby Island,” which both of my sisters have been recommending to me for years.
Here’s a summary about this book from Goodreads:
Twelve-year-old Mary Wallace and her ten-year-old sister Jean survive the wreck of an ocean liner on its way to Australia and manage to make it to a seemingly deserted island in a lifeboat with four babies.
