Canadian in every detail, Fishing introduces kids to the people, skills, machines and environmental concerns involved in the fishing industry. Readers take an armchair trip to both the west and east coasts of Canada and find out all about different means of fishing -- trawlers, longliners, seiners, gillnetters and fish farming. A fun combination of fiction and nonfiction, this book in the Canada at Work series fills an educational need for facts about Canada's fishing industry for seven to ten year olds.
A super example of fiction that's based on reality. A girl visits her grandparents in New Brunswick and learns all about the fishing industry - and the problems that come with over fishing. Cheerful illustrations offset a serious environmental theme.
The labeled pictures help younger children to follow along. This entry is colorful, descriptive, and detailed; the cheerful watercolor illustrations make otherwise dry subjects interesting.
Told in a story format, [this book] will capture the interest of the young audience while giving lots of valuable information.
