Into the Great Outdoors
"Your fishing pole dips. It's barely a tug. Maybe it's the bait bouncing off the bottom of the lake. But reeling in your fishing line, you spot a tiny walleye skimming the surface of the water. The fish is barely bigger than your bait. The walleye is halfway to the boat when you see a V-shape slice into your eater. Suddenly the little walleye is dragged beneath the waves. You almost lose your grip on the pole as the line runs out with a high whirring sound. A great weight yanks against you. You brace the butt of the rod against your life vest. Your fishing pole nearly bends in half. You reel in, fighting the rod tip out of the water. Grandpa grabs the net. A large northern pike glares up at you from just beneath the surface." So begins Freshwater Fishing for Kids. As a seasoned angler, I have excitedly reeled in the large pike (or large-mouth bass) that has chased the diminutive fish who took my bait. What an opportunity, to share this life experience with our children! Designed to teach skills that historically have passed from generation to generation, each book in this series explores the history, gear, safety and success techniques, and the responsible caretaking of our land. This series offers a dual role: reinforce parental instruction (or instruction from a hunter safety course) or introduce the great outdoor skills to families and children who may not have learned from their forefathers. Generously illustrated with photos and illustrations, this well written topical series also contains fun-filled facts, bolded vocabulary words with glossary, additional reading recommendations, and a family friendly website with additional book-specific resources. Take your love of the outdoors to the next level with this engaging and educational series. Each sc book contains 32 pgs. ~ DeannePublisher Description
This high-interest series introduces outdoor skills to younger readers who might not be ready to digest an adult-level hunting or hobby book. Each topical book is divided into 4-5 chapters and is generously illustrated with photos and illustrations. The books discuss the history of the sport, the equipment, safety, tips and more. These would be great resources for a child who is interested in these areas but might not have an experienced parent or older sibling to tag along with and learn from. 32 pages each, softcover.
