    I’ve never seen artwork like this before It’s so uniue and different I would have given this a Caldecott I’ve seen a lot of artwork in picture books by no means all of it but this is different from everything else I’ve come across A father and son go fishing and make memories together and realize they are in a circle of life It’s a simple story and it works wellI like Sharon Creech’s middle grade books and saw her name and wanted to read this Chris Raschka blew me away with the artwork It really is different just look at the cover You can feel the air and the breeze with the pictures It’s amazingThe nephew thought it a slow and weird book He hasn’t really been fishing I don’t think He can’t sit still long enough to do so He didn’t feel like anything happened and not much outwardly did This is about a relationship He was bored He gave this 2 stars

    This story touched my heart I loved the relationship between the boy and his father and how his father told the story of his first time fishing This story will relate to many many students I believe

    This review was originally written for The Baby Bookworm Visit us for new picture books reviews dailyHello 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 sonsA 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 repliesThis 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 uality 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 approvedBe sure to check out The Baby Bookworm for reviews

    While I absolutely adore the text of this picture book which is full of wonder and lyricism I struggle with the illustrations that seem over the edge and often difficult to decipher They have a very strong Italian pottery look with rounded everything and color everywhere I find it's very difficult for your eye to find a landing place When you look at the page your eye zooms round and round aimlessly which obviously fits the title but in the end doesn't enhance the finer points of this lovely story I like the idea of the round and airyness but just wish it was toned down about three tadsListen to thisI caught a bubble of breeze and a sliver of sky and a slice of yellow sun and a small gray house with a crooked porch and tiny windows and a red roofBeautifulOn the other hand I don't really like the other picture book that Sharon Creech wrote the one about the principal at the school Can't remember the title now A Fine Fine School? But have you ever read her middle grade Heartbeat? Wow that's a superb work

    Beautiful work by both Creech and Raschka Creech's poetry makes me nostalgic not for fishing but for golfing with my Dad She uses subtle repetition of phrase to great effect with me I related to the Father's yearning for an idyllic past and to the Son's desire to know about his Father's past while also living together in the present FATHER REMINISCES Oh where is that house?? And where are those fields and that river and that father and that boy? SON RESPONDS SIMPLY Right here Past and present collide happily making for a very satisfying bedtime read with our six year old daughter and three year old son They asked great uestions throughoutRaschka's watercolor illustrations remind me of Marc Chagall's work I've seen some criticism of the artwork's complexity I can see the point However I found that the illustrations brought out good uestions during the read a long All worked together well

    We entertain a lot of guests in Colorado over 30 in 2014 Some of them are uite small Unfortunately with no kids of our own our place can be rather dry for our littlest guests We have every toy older visitors could want but the youngest are left making do with a few well meaning but ineffectual attempts at entertainment Fortunately the Salida Public Library is a treasure So I take my little friends on a field trip It is always a hit There are games to play and puzzles to solve And each gets to check out a book or three to take back for bedtime reading Which is how I discovered this charming picture book The illustrations are colorful and alive The story is sweet with a tinge of melancholy for the adult reading it aloud

  9. Brandee Osborn Brandee Osborn says:

    A boy and his father go on a fishing trip with only a can of worms and a sack of sandwiches It is about imagination the boy figuring out who he is through his father and who his father is and not about literally catching fish A great creative thinking piece that can show how something isn't always what you may think it is

  10. Cheryl Kays Cheryl Kays says:

    This is a beautifully illustrated story that tells about a boy and his father's first fishing trip together Though the pictures are bright and vibrant the wording could be tricky for many elementary aged students I would recommend using this as a read aloud for older students upper elementary and middle school
