Summary

Summary

When salmon are ready to spawn, they struggle upstream to their birthplace. Their remarkable journey is just one of the twelve topics discussed in this clearly written look at the two main kinds of salmon -- Pacific salmon and Atlantic salmon. Kids can find out about where salmon live, their life cycle, their place in the food chain and much more.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-This well-organized book presents numerous facts about the anatomy and life of Atlantic and Pacific salmon and all subspecies. Each spread covers a topic in short paragraphs, captions, boxes, and illustrations. The text flows in a relaxed, informative style. Ogle's muted watercolor paintings clearly show anatomical detail, and many pages are lightly "washed" in pale blue or green. A graceful work about these remarkable creatures.-Jean Pollock, King Country Library System, Seattle, WA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
