SUMMARY The Cay by Theodore Taylor

Alifornia Literature Award Southern California Council on Literature for Children and Young People Award A Child Study Children's Book Committee Children's Book of the Yea. I read this book with my students when I was a 5th grade teacher in Virginia four times However I don t remember enjoying the book as much then as I did this year A 12 year old boy Phillip and an old black sailor Timothy are stranded on a tiny Caribbean island after their boat is attacked by the Germans near Curacao during World War II Phillip has been blinded as a result of the shipwreck and must rely on Timothy to help him survive on the islandTheodore Taylor effectively illustrates the mature theme of race relationships during a tenuous time in history through Phillip and Timothy s unusual relationship in this book Phillip is less than excited about relying on an old black man for food and shelter but slowly comes to appreciate Timothy as than just a means for survival The reader is drawn into the story by the compelling situation thrust upon the characters and will keep reading to find out if Phillip and Timothy will be rescuedThe girls in the Battle of the Books group that I work with had their best discussion regarding this book These 5th graders are the highest performing in their grade level but I was still astonished to hear the following conclusion pour without prompting from the mouth of one student The reason they made him Phillip blind was to show the theme that the color of somebody s skin really doesn t matter just like true friendship is blind Gotta love those moments as a teacherTwo interesting facts about this book are that Theodore Taylor wrote it in only three weeks in 1969 and appropriately dedicated it to Martin Luther King JrDespite my reluctance to re read this book it turned out to be one of the best of the 40 books on the Battle list this year A great book for any student old enough and motivated enough to tackle Timothy s island accent the only real challenge of this uick read
