Fishing with Grandma
Fishing with Grandma is about a little boy and his sister who go spend the day with their grandmother. They are Inuit and live in the north. The kids want their grandma to take them out and show them how to go ice fishing. Grandma is very excited to show them everything. She tells them to dress in warm layers so they don’t sweat, and to test the ice thickness with a tuuq. The kids learn to break a hole in the ice and use a jigging stick to catch the fish. They take the fish they catch back to the older people in their village who cannot fish. Grandma says it is important for the kids to learn traditions.
I was so excited when I got Fishing with Grandma because I love to fish with my Yaya. She always teaches me and my sister things in nature. I know that she goes ice fishing every winter and catches fish, but I have only done it with her when I was really little.Reading Fishing with Grandma makes me want to spend more time fishing with my Yaya. I really loved this book because of the illustrations and it teaches me some of the tools needed for ice fishing.
