A number of people recommended this book to me because they know the author. I guess Minneapolis is smaller than I think. I finally got a chance to borrow it from my library.
This is the story of a boy and his dad going to fish for food. They need the fish for their dinner and have to fish early because the dad has to work. The boy’s parents work a lot so enjoys this time with his dad. His dad also finds the fishing reminds him of his childhood. The boy and his dad catch fish for dinner and return home so Dad can go to work.
I think this is a story about how spending time with our parents can be special and create memories. The memories are things you can share with your own family down the road. You can find something like a pond and create the same experience. It may be a different pond but it is the same memories.
