" This is such a fun book! I love the relationship between grandpa and grandson as demonstrated through their day fishing. It’s precious! The tie in with life lessons and fishing lessons is clever, with a fun little twist at the end. And I loved the author photos (you’ll have to read to see what I mean!) An overall super cute, but also sentimental and wise, story for kiddos (and their adults!) This would make a great gift for any fisherman dad or grandpa, too! " - Marcy
"Beautifully written and illustrated, Grandpa’s Lessons on Fishing and Life gives some excellent nuggets of wisdom that apply in so many areas of life! Quick fun read for kids!" - Aaron
"I loooove this book, it is short, straight to the point, and colorful!

As a pediatrician, I will definitely recommend this book! " - Dr. Lulu
Stephen learns a valuable lesson about his belief in himself! This story is sure to encourage and inspire struggling learners. They'll relate to Stephen's frustration. They'll root for his success. They'll learn that practice doesn't make perfect... but it does make BETTER!
"I love the theme of this book and what Stephen eventually came to understand thanks to his patient teacher! “I will not give up before I give it a try!” Isn’t that great advice for each of us, no matter our age?" - Lynne
"This is a great book for children who struggle with school work or confidence in their abilities to learn." - Susan

The author did a great job writing the story in a way that all readers can connect with it.
I'm also a first grade teacher and will definitely be adding this to my read-aloud shelf!" - Jordan
" A fun story kids can connect with about good deeds going wrong. We've all had good intentions that didn't quite work out when we acted on them, and this book portrays that in very relatable way. I'm sure kids will have a good laugh and experience some relief seeing that they're not alone in having had their good deeds gone wrong. "
" This is a great book! Very cute, but also funny. I was laughing out loud at times. It’s a character-building story for children to learn kindness and perseverance- to keep trying and not be hard on themselves no matter how many let downs they experience. "
" Even as adults, we have good deeds that go wrong. You can’t help but root for Stephen as he tries his best to be kind to everyone he meets. While those plans are derailed at every turn, it’s heartwarming to see him pick himself up, dust himself off, and move forward. It’s a lesson we can all learn! "
"This is a great way to use the current circumstances to remind kids about some of the basic, fundamentally good behaviors. And I know a few adults who could use a refresher!"
"This easy-reader is a great source for parents looking for ways to teach their kids about adjusting to life under quarantine. But the lessons Grandpa teaches go beyond life as we know it now; they can be applied to life during any circumstances.
Parents and kids will enjoy reading and learning from this book!"
"What a great book to help children cope with life right now! I love the skills presented, especially the ones that encourage having good character! Must read!"
