Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
That lobster fishing became a New England tradition should surprise no one: When European settlers first arrived, lobsters were so common that they were generally regarded as cheap food for the poor! Times have changed, but the proud tradition continues. This colorful board book introduces this fascinating occupation to a new generation of landlubbers.

The photographs are fabulous. The opening page shows a big suspended over the petals of a flower. The hairs make it look fuzzy and friendly although bees can and do sting when alarmed. Starosta provides an excellent account of bees-how they live, roles in the hive and nature, methods of communication and a quick look at the bee family. The clear pictures on a white background and the informative text should provide a good start for kids who are curious about nature. This offering joins many others in the "Animal Close-Ups" series. 1992 (orig.

Have you ever eaten a lobster? If so, do you know where it came from? Pallotta takes kids on a real adventure on Big Joe's lobster boat. First the young boy and girl put on their lifejackets, and then they head out on a boat with a large open back bay. A diagram shows what a lobster trap looks like and how it is used. Each trap is marked by a buoy and that is how the lobsterman knows which traps are his. When Big Joe's traps are pulled aboard, they do not always contain lobsters—sometimes there are fish or crabs which are thrown back into the sea. The same is true of females with eggs. Only lobsters of a certain size can be kept. The claws are banded and the lobsters are placed in a bucket. The kids in this outing are delighted to take a bucketful of lobsters to their grandmother and wish that they could go out lobstering everyday. The photographs provide an excellent documentary of this outing and will be a real treat for kids who may never have seen the ocean or been aboard a boat. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
