Sam is one spirited little girl, convinced that she can do big things without anybody’s help, even her big brothers. So she sets out to prove it, showing she’s a real fisherwoman early one summer morning at her family’s lake cottage.
Readers will feel Sam’s excitement at each step of her mission. When things seem to go awry, families will cheer for Sam as she faces each new challenge with a can-do attitude. But will this spunky little girl catch her fish?
Described as “visual haiku”, Waldorf art educator, Melody Zahn Russell’s potato prints embody Sam’s story beautifully, grounding it in the adventures of a life on the water.
