Come along as Grandpa's special fishin' friend (his grandson) tells us about the fun they have on the lake looking for a prize catch!
Learning to fish is a bonus. The book can help you find a special "thing'" for your child and his/her grandparents, or even jump-start an oral history project across the generations.

Buy. You'll likely want two copies: one for your house and one for the grandparents!
Our preschooler was most interested in looking for the fish in the illustrations. When we finished, she wanted to know if Papa can take her fishing on a lake!
This one reads so smoothly you feel like you're spending a lazy afternoon in the boat, too. This a books will help you recall special times with a grandparent (even if you weren't fishing buddies), and remind you that you want those same kind of memories for your children, too.
The illustrations are beautiful, the story moves along just as it should: with a lazy, wait for the fish kind of pace. AND you get fishing tips in the back.
