Great for Boys!!!,
This review is from: Escape (Island, Book 3) (Paperback)
If your looking for books that will hook boys into reading, then this is the one! As a teacher I know that getting boys interested in novels has become increasingly difficult. Boys are great with informational books or comics, but it is harder to catch their interest in chapter books. This book is the third book in a series of the "Island" books. It is highly interesting for its audience. It is about 6 chidlren (4 boys, 2 girls) that get sent on a boat as a punishment and a storm shipwrecks them on an island.
On this island the children learn to work together and take care of one another (developing life skills). They discover some smugglers and even "Junior" which is a left over atomic bomb from World War II. It is a wonderful series for boys that will appeal to their need for adventure and everyone of all ages. It is a different story line and has many real challenges that you see these characters go through that may help you in your everyday life. I suggest this book for any child around third grade and up.
