Get ready to spend some fun on a great adventure with Buckley, an adorable little Schnauzer, his big brother Ralphel, and Grandpa as they set out to a nearby river to catch some fish.
Buckley is up early in the morning, too excited to sleep because today he is going fishing. Along with his best friend and “big brother” Ralphel, they will head out to Grandpa’s favorite fishing hole. He can’t wait to see what they will catch and imagines some yummy fish cooking on the grill. It smells so good!
Now it’s time to pack for the trip. Ralphel and Buckley head to the garage to find everything. Ralphel grabs a shovel and his fishing pole - don’t forget the yellow bucket and fishing hooks! Buckley closely watches the bucket to make sure they don’t forget to take it.
The cute little dog, eager to be a fishing pro, heads to the car and jumps in, too excited to wait. Wagging his tail to show his happiness, he looks out the window of the car, waiting for Grandpa. But wait...where is the bait? How could they forget the bait?
Buckley heads out to the backyard and starts digging. Will he find any worms? Time is running out if they want to spend the day fishing. Will they ever get to Grandpa’s favorite fishing hole and catch some delicious fish for dinner?
Susan Hines newest book about Buckley, an adorable Schnauzer, introduces the joys of fishing to young readers. This is the second book Hines has authored about Buckley and his delightful antics continue with a flare in this story as he enthusiastically shows readers everything involved in going fishing - from getting up early and packing, to collecting worms, as well as the time spent at the water's edge with friends. Buckley’s Family Fishing Trip is a great way to introduce youngsters to the joys of fishing, but it is more than just a fishing tale. When the group finally makes it to that elusive fishing spot, the author shows that fishing isn’t just about catching the biggest, best fish but about the time you spend with family and friends. Written in rhyme, with simple sentences and brightly illustrated images, the story makes a perfect bedtime tale for fans of the outdoors.
Quill says: Young fishing fans will love Buckley’s Family Fishing Trip. It’s a fun story that shares the love of the outdoors and fishing. It also showcases the great time you can have with family and friends along the shores of your favorite fishing hole.
