Our SkyWalker kids are reading Robinson Crusoe from April to September 2021.
Robinson Crusoe is one of the world’s most popular adventure stories. Daniel Defoe based his classic tale of survival on an uninhabited island on a true story.
Even today, the story remains relevant and meaningful for the following reasons:
1) Impact of Nature.
Nature controls Robinson Crusoe despite his best efforts but also inspires and challenges him. Crusoe’s journey of self-discovery occurs entirely through his association with nature, until the point when the man he calls Friday arrives.
2) His relationship with Friday.
Crusoe forms the deepest friendship of his life with Friday, a man he rescued from death.
3) Being thankful.
We realise again and again, the need to be thankful for what we have and not to be greedy.
