Kid's Korner: Two books by Gary Lamit
Shared by Kristi Herbrand
Title: Wally the Walking Fish Meets Madison and Cooper
Author: Gary Lamit
This was a really cute story! Madison goes fishing with her dog Cooper, a golden lab. She catches a walking fish (she always catches and releases them). All the animals in this book can talk though! Cooper is always hungry and is always commenting that whatever fish or animal they are talking to would probably taste good!
Each new animal that gets introduced also gets a little blurb at the bottom of the page that tells all about the species. Fun and you learn some new stuff too! I think I am partial though as my son's middle name is Cooper and we actually have a black labradoodle (lab/poodle mix)!
Title: My Fishing Journal
Author: Louis Gary Lamit
Publisher: BookSurge Publishing
I am hoping that my son will get a chance to use this on his visits up to his grandpa's house. They live on a lake in Wisconsin and he learned how to cast this year.
This is a great journal that gives a place to record all about the fishing conditions and where and when you fished. Then you can record what kind of fish you caught and how big they were and what you did with them. You can also tell how they were cleaned/cooked. On the adjacent page is a place where you can sketch the fish that you caught and either attach a picture or write a little journal entry. (Some adults I know might like this book!)
There are pages at the beginning and at the end that tell about all the different kind of fishing equipment, bait, lures and flies. You also get little blurbs about different fish. There are 2 editions of this book - one is in black and white and contains 100 pages. The other one is in color, but it only has 48 pages.
