Book Overview

Armchair adventurers can set sail for the remote Galapagos Islands and learn about the strange and unique animals that live there.

The Galapagos Islands are a chain of volcanic islands located on either side of the equator in the Pacific Ocean. The isolated location of the islands has allowed a vast number of species to develop that are original to each island, such as the marine iguana, the blue-footed booby, the magnificent frigatebird and of course the giant Galapagos tortoise, which may live to be over one hundred years old. Studied by Charles Darwin during his historic voyage on the HMS Beagle, the island life contributed to his groundbreaking theory of evolution. Today the islands are a popular tourist destination and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This book, part of the New York Times best-selling series, is enhanced by eighty illustrations and a detachable fold-out map complete with four photographs on the back.

   Great starting point for research project.
She used it as part of her research for a paper and this book in particular sparked an interest in Darwin's research. In this series we used several books for school projects.

   Great non-fiction book for children about the amazing Galapagos Islands! 🐢
Good factual information about the Galapagos Islands, written in chapters with some black and white illustrations. This non-fiction book would be great for learning about this part of the world or a child traveling with their parents to the Galapagos Islands. A fantastic place to visit a wonderful trip!

   Making Connections with the Galapogoes Island - fun and informative.
A great informational book for primary and intermediate readers. Interesting, well-written and informative. Facts that interested listenersreaders include the origin of the name Galápagoes and the other species of animals on the islands, particularly the blue-footed boobie birds. Pair this book with other informative books about the Galapagos, but be sure to read Marie's Galápagos girl - Galapaguea. Both of them are morphed while wearing the blue-footed booby socks sold to save the endangered and extinct animals and morph it all into a discussion of endangered and endangered species. More connections for reading and research.

   Full of detail, great for kids!
I am a teacher and bought this so that I could learn about the Galapagos before speaking about them and 2) keep a copy of the book in my classroom. It is a great read for children aged 7-13, depending on their reading ability. It is well-organized and interesting.
