Children's LiteratureIn this beginning reader, a father and son are on a fishing trip. Joe and his father go through all the steps to catch fish for dinner, everything from preparing the bait on the fishing line, watching the floaters at the end of their line, seeing fish bop from the water, the tug of their fishing line, and each one respectively reeling in a fish for their take home meal. Since this is a purple level in the "Read It! Readers" series, the text is only one line on each two pages openly displayed for the reader. The selection will make a great introduction to young emerging readers still grasping the mastery of words and simple sentence structure. The text purposefully uses high frequency words and sight words. The illustrations are simplistic but aesthetically pleasing for beginning readers. A fine balance is brought with the text and pictures. An Accelerated Reader quiz is available for this title. 2006, Picture Window Books, Ages 4 to 9.
