We find the Robinson family back in the 19th century on a sailing ship headed for new lands for settlement. After a terrible hurricane like storm, the family alone survives and are washed ashore. The crew had gone off alone in life boats, abandoning the few passengers ane were never heard from again. A most interesting aspect of the family dynamics involves the formality of addressing one another, the expectations of the parents as to proper behavior and respect for one another. The author obviously had a amazing knowledge of the local flaura and fauna and this knowledge as displayed by 'Father' was instramental in the Robinsons being able to survive. The fact that the ship was nearby and trapped in the rocks gave the family considerable time to return to the wreck and scavenge for a considerable amount of food, tools, weapons, gunpowder, timber, etc. The manner in which the family were able to creatively take advantage of the natural environment and the items from the ship were described in great detail. The survival of a number of farm animals and poultry from the wreck assisted them greatly. For years I have always planned to read this book again and finally got to it. For those recognizing that 'surviving' an array of disasters that will someday befall us,[asteroids, solar storms, mammoth hurricanes, EMPs, etc] this tomb is a must to read. 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful. Hard to go back in Time By Will Plan 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. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Definitely easier to read that the "grown up" version... By Do-It-Yourself Danielle This is definitely the toned down, easier to understand version of Swiss Family Robinson. I bought the full version, then realized my mistake after trying to explain Archimedes' Lever to a 3.5 yr old in the first chapter of the book (haha). There are illustrations every chapter, and even though my son still doesn't quite get the story I think it is somewhat more on his level. We at least have less to explain.That said, I never read this before, and as with many children's movies and books I'm often wincing through parts of the book when I see what I consider more adult stuff, even though my children don't apparently notice or care if they kill and cook everyone's favorite zoo animals throughout the book. I'm like "Oh look flamingos! We saw those at the zoo the other day... (trail off)... oh they killed and ate it..." Anyhow, obviously with survival on an island there is a substantial amount of killing animals involved and done by kids. I'm not really opposed to this, but phew... different world than now and I'm realizing that if my son had a better attention span, I'd have a lot of questions to answer. I'm looking forward to reading this with him when he's older, better able to understand how different things were, and when we can actually have a discussion about the book.

From School Library Journal Grade 3-5-- It goes without saying that, in the process of condensing and rewriting these books down to a fourth-grade reading level, most of the distinguished aspects of the works--writing style, language, atmosphere, characterization--have been sacrificed for a simple, not to say simplistic, master-plots approach that conveys the incidents but fails to impart the justification for their continuing endurance in the canon of juvenile literature. The books are illustrated with some attention paid to the sense of the plots and characters. For those who persist in the fallacy that knowing what the so-called "classics" of children's literature are about is a satisfactory substitution for actually experiencing them by reading the original, this series is acceptable. For the rest of us, it's as if someone's painted a guppy white and called it Moby Dick. --Christine Behrmann, New York Public LibraryCopyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. This new series of Illustrated Chosen Classics is a collection of the world's most famous stories, especially retold for children. Language Notes Text: English (translation) Original Language: German
