Our next stop as we Count Our Way Across the USA is to Maine where we can listen to the call of the loon, hike through the Eastern white pine forests, or enjoy a clambake at the beach while watching whales splash in the ocean. Fishing for Numbers is packed with enough Maine facts, lore, and history to keep readers fishing for hours. Readers will learn why Maine is known for their shipbuilders, how fast a puffin can fly, and which is the only domestic cat native to North America. There is even a recipe for a traditional baked bean supper.
Reviews & Acknowledgements
“With Fishing for Numbers, the author of L is for Lobster: A Maine Alphabet adds a counting book to her Border State repertoire. This 11th-generation Maine native takes young readers through green-dappled Eastern white pine forests; on beach walks through clam-digging country; and on a quick tutorial of the state’s shipbuilding history. The book even includes a recipe for a traditional baked bean supper!” —Barnes & Noble
