I thought that Swimmer was a GREAT book! It was full of fun and ineresting facts about Salmon, and their life stages. It also had some pretty cool facts about Alaska. My teacher read it to us and I learned a whole lot! This book is great for ALL ages. And it's excellent for book reports too! So any time you're not busy you should really read this book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book in the gift store at the Native Cultural Center in Anchorage, Alaska. I bought some inexpensive story-telling
knives (not sharp)such as the ones native people of Alaska used to draw pictures in the sand as they told their traditional stories. (You can see some original story-telling knives at the museum in Fairbanks.) I asked the native-born cashier if there was a children's book that used this story-telling technique. He showed me this book and told me that he had read this book many times as a child. In this book you will see a story-telling knife and learn to draw the symbols for the story. I liked the illustrations and story of the life of a salmon. I have purchased this book and a story-telling knife to give to my daughter. I am very impressed with the many native cultures of the Pacific Northwest. They prefer to be called "cultures" and not "tribes." "Swimmer" would be a good introduction for anyone who would like to learn more about the Pacific Northwest and its native cultures.

Format: Paperback
I think this book is a great book. My teacher Mrs. Allen read it to me and my class. Swimmer was a fiction and non-fiction book. Shelley Gill will be coming to our school on Monday October 16, 2000. My favorite thing about this book is the facts and the story. My two favorite characters were the little girl and Swimmer. It was astounding to me how the salmon knew where and how the salmon knew to go to the ocean. I gave it a 5 stars because of its action. I thought that it was scary when Swimmer was about to be eaten by a killer whale. I loved how he hid so close to the ledge, and how the salmon jumped. My teacher told us a story about her adventures with salmon. She also told us about how people watched the salmon jump up streams and being eaten by a Grizzly Bears. I thought that was sad how they were eatan, but again I eat them too. When I eat salmon I eat it eather baked or fried. Swimmer was an awesome book to me and some of my friends. I hope Shelley Gill likes our school and enjoys our students!

I gave it two stars because, it was was not nearly as good as a lot of other books that she wrote. I like scary kinds of books. Shelley Gill is coming to our school. I am excited. We had to raise money to get her here by having a lemonade stand with cookies, candies, and lemonade.

This book is a wonderful book. It teaches you the life of a salmon and what they eat and what eats them. It is very interesting, too. I like the story very much. I gave it 5 stars because it is so informative. Anybody can read it. I also like it because it is fiction and non-fiction. It was colorful and fascinating. I love Shelley Gill books and I hope to read another one soon!
