by Joyce A. St. Clair
One night Jasmin and Jake go to sleep in their beds and wake up on a deserted island without any idea of how they got there. Frightened and alone, the children must depend on one another to find their way home.
In their pursuit to get off the island, the children face some scary hurdles that must be overcome. The children work together and develop a plan to get off the island. In their plan, they utilize previous experiences in their lives and, most importantly, they work together.
The children learn a valuable lesson on how important teamwork is in accomplishing a goal. Working as a team teaches children how to trust, to take risks and develop leadership qualities.
