Received my books this afternoon. Read the story and it took me back to those good ole days. My dad and I fished the St Francois river and Clearwater Lake. Got a little water in my eyes thinking about that. My grandkids are young but I know they will love this book. Good luck with your book. Take care
I love the books. The grandkids are gonna love them. Folks, it's a great cause and a real feel good story. I hope there's more stories coming.
I would hope that with all that you and your family have contributed to the fishing community that our local anglers would be thrilled to purchase books for Kids, Grandkids, Nieces and Nephews, etc. All for a tremendous organization....the videos of those special needs kids catching fish really is touching!!
Hi Vanetta. Love Love Love your book. Got 2 hardcover copies. I for me. I for Jennifer for her birthday. We both love the story. ❤️
Hey Vanetta, I just received your book and I can’t wait to share it with my grands. One of our greatest joys is sharing our love of fishing with them and your book with such beautiful illustrations will bring the adventure to life. Thanks for sharing this great story!
My husband and I finally got the chance to read this book to our youngest tonight. It was a great story. We took turns reading it to her. It brought back so many great memories of fishing with my grandpa growing up. I will cherish those memories forever. Until I can fish with him again!
I received your book kiddo. I’m not ashamed to tell you as I read through it I honestly had tears a flowing, it really struck something inside. Thanks for putting this out there, I honestly believe anyone who reads this will have a flashback to those great memories when fishing truly was just a magical time in their lives. Thank you
Love the storyline and the purpose and f this book. Glad to be able to purchase and help other enjoy the outdoors.
What wonderful memories of a child and her grandpa! One of the sweetest and nicest books I have ever read! But the best surprise was to find out the author has donated all proceeds to an organization that help special need children and veterans have the opportunity to enjoy the sport of fishing! Great job!
