Overview

A poetic yet scientifically accurate description of the life cycle of a salmon. This book will inspire children in classrooms and at home to appreciate the world around us!

Fast-paced prose and brilliant illustrations follow the salmon from their form as eggs in a stream to the wide ocean, eventually making a hazardous journey home to their stream of origin. Carol Reed-Jones uses cumulative verse, a literary technique that is not only enjoyable but suggests how interconnected salmon are with their habitat. At the back is a section on salmon facts and what makes a good habitat for them, teaching the basics of ecology and why clean streams and waters are so important.

A perfect book for:

  • parents and teachers needing homeschool supplies for kindergarten (or any grade!)
  • anyone looking for forest and other habitat books for kids
  • anyone looking for children's books to help instill an appreciation of our planet!
