Reviews

"Readers learn about the traditional tools of the trade through prose peppered with Inuktitut and also take away a sweet message of caring for our elders, as the youngsters share their yummy Arctic char with those who can no longer jig for themselves."
"Brightly colored full-page scenes exemplify the children's fascination and clearly illustrate the tools they use on their adventure. A natural fit for a social studies classroom, but also a cheery tale of intergenerational family life."--Booklist
". . . Fishing with Grandma, which offers an engaging tale of two grandchildren and their grandma on an Arctic adventure, is ideal for primary grades."
