Their history was very interesting. He went first to England, with his wife and children, consisting of four sons, between the ages of twelve and five.

The Swiss Family Robinson is a family adventure story and as such should probably be read as a family when the kids are young. I don't think it's meant for us old, knitpicky grumps. Originally, Swiss Army chaplain Johann David Wyss (1743-1818) wrote an adventure story modeled after Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe to amuse his four sons, who, one imagines, found their counterparts in age and character in their father's book.

The Swiss Family Robinson has delighted generations of readers with its exciting tale of a family which, though shipwrecked, displays the right stuff and builds a charming colony that later, they do not want to leave. Storytellers over the years have injected so many episodes into the various versions that probably none closely match the original. Indeed, the Baroness de Montholieu expanded the book from two volumes into five when she translated it into French. This effort was re-translated into English in 1849 by .

I first read this book in grade school, went back and read it again in high school, and held it in fond memory every since. Now that I'm seventy, and have a Kindle, I decided to go back and read it again. It is just as good as I remembered. The story of a family who found themselves on a strange island where animals from all over the world live side by side with plants from everywhere may seem unbelievable, but the story really isn't about that. It's about a family working together, laughing together, and building a life together. It's about making the the best of the resources you have available to you and enjoying what comes to you. If you think about it, it's still popular for the same reason The Waltons were popular. Because this is the way we wish our own families could have been. This book will be loved as long as families face hardship and work together to overcome and prosper.

I am 12 years old and I have just finished an exiting survival book called The Swiss Family Robinson. Johann Wyss originally wrote the story in the early 1800s. This book is filled with adventure, sorrow, and more! A family becomes shipwrecked on a deserted island, but they get many items from their ship including guns, ammunition, animals, and other items. They survive and thrive on this lush island, filled with everything else they need.

In the beginning, a violent storm shipwrecks this family of six on two rocks near an island. The father devises a plan to get them off the ship and onto the island. Another exiting event is later, when they have become accustomed to the island, they decide to tie the heavy items left on the partially sunken ship to barrels and blow up the ship, to make the heavy items float to shore. Sadly, one day, while walking their animals, an enormous snake appeared and ate their donkey. They used this opportunity to kill the snake, but their poor donkey Grizzle was dead.

If you like adventure and survival, this is a great book for you. Will the family survive? Will they ever get back to civilization? Find out by reading this book!

Read the "light version" as a child. This time read from the adult perspective of being responsible of a family without outside support of assistance.

As a spoiler, of course, the likelihood of encountering the wide variety of animals at on location and the quick domestication of such is more of the "fantasy island" approach. I hate it growing up. LOL.

This time around it was interesting to see the faith of the parents, their prayer lives; and of course, their constant thankfulness for everyday blessings--like surviving another day. I thought it refreshing to see resourceful individuals solve problems and adapt; but then remember to be thankful. It may seem harsh to some to read of the destruction of some of the "local" predators or animals that cause havoc to crops, etc; but when in "survival" mode, you do what you have to do to help ensure your continued life and those of your family.

Easy read, still allows you to use your imagination, but lacks the character development of our more modern books.

This is a great book. It teaches many great values, like the value of being optimistic, the value of hard work, the value and importance of strong families, and the importance of being curious.

The value of being optimistic is taught through the example of this Swiss family. Being shipwrecked on an uninhabited island, they immediately explore the island and find many useful things through their ingenuity and problem solving. Because they work hard, they are able to find many foods and other plants that are useful to their survival.

Throughout this story, you consistently see how each family member is valued, each family member uses their talents as best they can to help and serve one another. In life, we must focus on others. Trying to help others makes life more fulfilling, and helps us refine our talents.

My seven-year-old daughter loves to read and I was eager to introduce her to the classics in English literature. I knew the original versions might be too daunting for her due to the high level vocabulary and have been looking around for well-written adaptations that retain the essence of the original.

The language in this adaptation is pitched just right, neither too easy nor too advanced for an independent young reader. The story has enough drama and action to keep a young reader engaged.

There are many other classics in the Stepping Stones Classics chapter book series, and I highly recommend them for independent young readers who'd like to read the classics. There are also two DVDs which I think would be lovely complements to this book:

This one was so Great listening to it on Axlea so we dicided to see it on the 13 hour show. We still have many chapters to listen in bed. That l do hope they show the tree house and the cave and the farm, gardens and how they would toss things at the little animalas and they would toss food back at them. It will be so neat watching do what they had to do to stay dry. And to keep there wits about them selfs. Also will be so GREAT NOT TO Wake Up Real Late in The Story And Agree Where We BOTH FELD A Sleep AT !!!
Something is wrong with this book. It is large like a coloring book and the pages look like somebody made copies of a typed page and bound them into a book. The type is small and faded. The book is flimsy and warped. I'm sending it back. There is no information on when or where it was printed. Awfully strange. I don't like the book. I love the story and bought the book as a gift but would be embarrassed to give it. Very shoddy.
