About the Author

Ben and Jamie Anderson are educators from Durand, Michigan. This is their first book venture. They live in the country on a small lake with their children, Lila and Liam. Ben has been teaching 4th grade since 1999, and is most passionate about teaching math and science. Each year, he organizes a field trip for all 4th grade students in his building to go fishing at a local millpond. He connects this activity with Michigan’s state benchmarks for science, as well as the ecosystem activity included with this book. Jamie is an educator of visual arts and has taught ages ranging from preschool through high school. She is also currently working toward a master’s degree in early childhood education. Watercolor is often her preferred medium, but she also uses colored pencil, acrylic paint, and soft pastel in her artwork.

This is a lovely story about a grandpa and grandson going out fishing. Grandpa is about to give his grandson more than just a fishing lesson. Although Liam is hoping to catch a "whopper" and is focused on that, grandpa is about to show him a lot more.

This story is more than a story, it is also a science lesson. There is much to learn and it would be a good book for any 10,11 or 12 year old to read. The illustrations are very good and at the end of the book is a recipe for cooking the "whopper" Liam does end up catching. There is also a diagram in the back of the book on how to make an eco-system.

Good for fun and good for learning!

It was part of a birthday gift for my grandson Liam, He says he really enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty ironic that we fish together and a Book with that title caught my eye.

Liam goes fishing with his grandpa. He hopes to land a whopper - which he does. In the course of catching it, he learns how other creatures play important roles in the web of life of a pond. While he catches a fish that they eat that day, he also catches a deeper appreciation of nature - an appreciation that should grow and last a lifetime. If taking a child to fish, it's good book take along. It's an easy read and nicely illustrated. To enhance the book's message, there is a simple DIY ecology project at the book's end. Uses two liter soda bottles as a place to construct a little living environment. Also, there is a recipe for baking a caught pike. Sounds very tasty.

The book. Didactic and entertaining. Belongs in every fisherman's library.

Not the story I had hoped for is a little old to be considered a children's book for three years maybe when they can read themselves but my 3 year old grandboys were not interested and they love to fish.
