Title: Books about fishing
Post by: marla-lesage on September 27, 2014, 04:36 AM
I'm looking for picture books about going fishing.  I'm sure there are lots, but can't think of many & haven't stumbled upon any.  (Well except McElligot's Pool & Fishing with Gubby)

I don't know if this is available for purchase anymore, but this is the fish book I wrote for Scholastic, an easy reader. It has 130 words, I DO remember that!

http://www.amazon.com/One-Smart-Fish-Rookie-Reader/dp/0516249827/ref=sr_1_cc_2?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1414528439&sr=1-2-catcorr&keywords=LAURA+MANIVONG

Libraries may have it still.

There is a little verse novel called GONE FISHING by Tamera Will Wissinger. I think it is marketed as MG, but it is a charming illustrated book that is perfect for kids that are just starting to read longer works on their own.
