Presenting accurate information about the life cycle of the wild Pacific salmon in the format of a beautifully illustrated picturebook, young readers age 4 to 8 will enjoy author Annette LeBox's eloquent and enthusiastically recommended story of Sumi, a coho salmon from her birth and trip down river to the ocean, to her time as a fully mature fish swimming in the great seas, to her determined return up river to her birthplace where she can spawn. Karen Reczuch's artwork is a perfect visual aid in caring forward the informative text, which is enhanced with the inclusion of an afterword presenting the factual basis for the picturebook story and the threats facing wild salmon today. Especially recommended for school and community library collections, Salmon Creek is also available in a hardcover edition (0888994583, $16.95).
