When two Ojibway girls go fishing with their grandfather they boast about the number of fish they'll catch as they ride in their grandfather's truck to the lake. After listening to the two girls, grandfather shares a Nanabosho story about a time the trickster hero and his friend Soaring Eagle were greedy as they stocked up on fish for the winter.
Exploring the theme of overfishing and the growing threat to our oceans, this picture book offers an aboriginal legend that teaches the importance of using our fisheries in a sustainable manner so that they remain for future generations.
Appropriate for kindergarten to grade four, this aboriginal legend provides traditional teaching with a valuable lesson about greed. Great read aloud to introduce social studies or environmental themes and outcomes.
