About this title


While fishing for bass, Katie and her grandfather observe a deer, an osprey, a goose, and other pond visiters

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- The Georges combine their expertise once again to portray the wonders and excitement to be found in the out-of-doors. Katie is fishing with her grandfather on Long Pond and her anticipation of catching her first bass is further enhanced by the enchantment of all that they see around them. With meticulous gouache paintings that sweep across double pages, the book treats young audiences to a realistic glimpse of the flora and fauna that surround a pond. As Katie patiently awaits that first nibble, both she and her grandfather quietly watch the water come alive with the sights and sounds of the animals' vigorous activity and enjoy the beauty of the wildflowers along the marshy shore. Each new encounter is deftly explored through their dialogue, and readers are continuously enriched by the stimulating narrative. The slight text adroitly packs information into its two-to-four lines per page, producing a vibrant picture-book introduction to the natural world. Dramatic in illustrations, serene in text, this selection will command attention and teachers will want to incorporate it into nature-unit studies. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH
