This version of “Robinson Crusoe” is a good example of a beginning chapter book. The chapters are very short and there are still many illustrations with the text, but the story is formatted to be a chapter book experience for a child learning the story of Robinson Crusoe for the first time. I myself didn’t learn the story of Robinson Crusoe until I was an undergrad in a literature course at CSS, but this version is able to introduce young students to the amazing man who was shipwrecked on a dese ...more

Robinson Crusoe (Young Reading) by Daniel Defoe
Long book but interesting. I listened to it on CD and liked the reader. For my own memory, here's a summary of the book:
Basically, Robinson gets ship wrecked and is stranded on an island. He is fortunate enough to be able to get things off of the ship (it wrecked on land) that would be useful to him before the ship is washed back to sea. Robinson creates a shelter (the castle) for himself and at first uses his guns to kill his food but comes to realize that his powder will eventually run out so
Winter storms have a way of wreaking havoc on travel plans, and we sincerely hope you don’t get stranded at the airport anytime soon. But if you’re stuck in transit, this classic is ready to transport even the most harried traveler from the terminal to tropical paradise.

Robinson Crusoe is just a normal sailor. He was sailing one day and the ship that he was sailing on got shipwrecked. On his way getting down, he saved some bibles and other stuff that was savable. He starts a new life on an island. He thinks that it is better living on an island because he doesn’t have to pay for anything. He stays there more than 24 years without seeing a human face. He had to hunt goats etc to eat.

One day he finds he finds an Indian man, who couldn’t speak English. He named

In one word :
Not that pleasant to read !
I liked this book because it has adventure and thrill.

I enjoyed the way he managed to make deal with ship wreckage, pirates and cannibals.
He has taught how to overcome hardships,loneliness.

I recommend all the children to read the book......
This book is about survival. Robinson's ship crashed and the people with him got out on rafts made of wood, but he swam to a desert island where he stayed for thirty-five years before he was found. This was a good book.

It is definately a great story, though I still am not tfinished reading it. I read about two paragraphs a day so its taking a while.However, I live in it when I am reading it! Great story!
I LOVED all the Christian teaching that was so imbedded through almost every page of the book. It was a very nice albeit unexpected aspect of this story.
Was the first book I read as a 6th grader.This book introduced me to the world of adventure and I was really amazed as a kid back then.
I like this book because it has adventure

I really loved this book! The author made you feel like you ere there. I hated to see it end.....
Ted Hopkins
this book is not about a man shipwrecked, it is a story about a man and his relationship with God.
A survival story that defines all survival stories. Good read.
