Overview

The reader of Salmon Stream follows the life cycle of these remarkable fish—hatching from eggs in a stream followed by a life in the wide ocean, and eventually making a hazardous journey home to their stream of origin. As in her earlier best-selling book, The Tree in the Ancient Forest, author Carol Reed-Jones uses cumulative verse—a literary technique that is not only enjoyable but suggests how interconnected salmon are with their habitat. The book also contains ample information about salmon and challenges to their habitat, as well as a list of useful resources.

She enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, and watching Douglas squirrels from her living room window. She strongly believes in living in ways that preserve the earth and all life. In addition to her writing, Carol teaches music, directs an early music vocal group, and is completing her Master's thesis in music history. Carol has written two books for Dawn Publications, the Ben Franklin Award-winning The Tree in the Ancient Forest and the beautiful new Salmon Stream, which follows the life cycle of salmon in cumulative verse.

Editorial Reviews

David Suzuki
Carol Reed-Jones captures the magnificence of the Pacific Salmon’s life history. It should inspire the child in all of us.
Michael Frome
Salmon Stream is truly a pleasure to read, for anyone of any age. The verse is lively and rhythmic, rich in imagery, yet well founded in the scientific cycle of salmon. It engages children in a positive way, showing how they can help make sure our beloved salmon will be with us always.
Children's Literature
Beginning with a cumulative rhyme that echoes The House That Jack Built, we follow the hatched salmon from the forest stream down to the sea. There they grow until they must swim back up the stream to spawn and begin the cycle again. The rhythm and rhyme make for more interesting reading aloud, but it is the drama of the cycle of nature, surviving against all odds, that carries the story. Maydak's naturalistic, double-page paintings are almost melodramatic. Each takes us beneath the surface to illuminate the cycle as well as giving us glimpses of what is above; we see the predators in the water and air as well as the dams and fish ladders. The manner of the visual telling makes us all sympathetic advocates for preserving the salmon's habitat. Along with added notes about the types of salmon, the cycle and stream, the author adds information about how to help conservation efforts. 2001, Dawn Publications, $16.95 and $7.95. Ages 6 to 9.
