Fishing In The Air (Sharon Creech)


Hello, everyone! Our book today is Fishing In The Air, written by Sharon Creech and illustrated by Chris Raschka, a colorful and imaginative tale about the special bond between fathers and sons.

A little boy and his father leave early one morning, to go on an adventure to a secret place. As they travel and prepare, they talk and use their imaginations, and the world around them comes alive with colors. When they begin to fish, the father tells the boy about where he grew up, and how his own father taught him to fish. “Where are that father and son now?” the man asks. “They’re here,” the boy replies.

This was a really interesting book, sort of existential, told in the voice of a curious, imaginative child. The art is gorgeously colorful and vibrant, tying in with the dreamlike quality of the narrative. It’s definitely a sweet book about fathers and sons, and while it was a bit long for some baby bookworms, JJ seemed to enjoy it. Baby Bookworm approved!
