My First Fish (Kid’s First Experiences) by Samina Parkar is a children’s picture book about a boy named Mason who is on his way with his family to a summer vacation spot. During their stay at the cabin on the river, he finds himself learning about different species of fish, and the tools needed in order to catch them. Parkar’s My First Fish perfectly illustrates numerous types of fish, so that young readers can clearly recognize one from the other. The colors are bright and there is a slight realistic quality to them, presumably so that readers are able to recognize them in the real world. The narrative is easy to understand and the storyline will conjure up all sorts of memories tied to fishing that might otherwise be forgotten over time.
Samina Parkar’s My First Fish (Kid’s First Experiences) was able to educate me in a way that felt organic; it didn’t feel as though it was a lesson. The story unfolded naturally. Sometimes children’s books can come across as lectures rather than true stories being told to children, and they might seem a bit rigid. Parkar’s My First Fish has a lot of heart and it is easy to see the love the author poured into it. My First Fish will easily become a favorite among present fishermen/fisherwomen as well as future fishermen and fisherwomen. I haven’t come across many fishing books for children and My First Fish is definitely one that I would put at the top of that genre list.
