You're reviewing: Amir's Big Catch

“The story and illustrations will have your readers ‘hooked’ on this delightful book. Clever use of vocabulary and beginning sounds accompany a story of working together in the spirit of fun!”–Beverly Haines, nursery school director of twenty-five years

Amir's Big Catch is a delightful primary text that teaches children the importance of teamwork and respect for nature. The colorful animated illustrations, as well as the lively dialogue, make reading fun.”–Vivian Gist Spencer, Ph.D., distinguished senior lecturer, Anne Arundel Community College

Amir’s Big Catch has great flow and spirit, and the artwork is wonderful. The repetitive nature of the book is a good memorization practice for kids of all ages; and the use of alliterations will help kids with learning letters and sounds. This fun and entertaining book covers so many educational bases.”–Victoria Vaske, Consumer Insights, Walmart

Sheila Jones

Sheila Jones’s inspiration for this book was sparked by a fishing adventure she shared with her friend Amir on Lake Brandt in North Carolina. It was a day of firsts—his first visit to the lake, his first fishing pole, and his first cast as a fisherman. It was a wonderful memory for both, and Sheila was honored to experience it through Amir's eyes.
