Description

When salmon are ready to spawn, they struggle upstream to their birthplace. Their remarkable journey is just one of the twelve topics discussed in this clearly written look at the two main kinds of salmon -- Pacific salmon and Atlantic salmon. Kids can find out about where salmon live, their life cycle, their place in the food chain and much more. The easy-to-read text and accurate, detailed illustrations of this title in the Kids Can Press Wildlife Series meet the research needs of young children and satisfy their curiosity about these important fish.

Editorial Reviews

This well-organized book presents numerous facts about the anatomy and life of Atlantic and Pacific salmon and all subspecies. Ogle's muted watercolor paintings clearly show anatomical detail… A graceful work about these remarkable creatures.

— School Library Journal

Salmon is a very worthwhile resource book for the inquisitive elementary school student and deserves a place in every school and public library. The text is accompanied by attractive and accurate illustrations that carefully depict the changes in appearance and size of the fish from eyed-egg through mature adult and spawners and simultaneously portray the surrounding habitat and the predators therein. The scope is complete for the elementary school level, and the presentation will be of good value in stimulating the young mind to further research.
