Review by

The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher is a story about a frog who lived in a little house at the edge of the pond. Mr. Jeremy Fisher decides to get in his boat and go fishing. First, he had to collect words to use for bait to catch minnows. Mr. Jeremy Fisher thought he had a minnow on his line, but it turned out to be little Jack Sharp, the stickleback, covered with spines! After little Jack Sharp jumped back into the water, a giant trout and took Mr. Jeremy and dived to the bottom of the pond. The trout hated the taste of Mr. Fisher so he let him go. Mr. Fisher swam and hopped all the way home without any fish to show for himself. He has his friends over for dinner and they ate roasted grasshopper instead. This story shows that everything might not go according to your plan, but you have to stay optimistic. Mr. Fisher didn't catch any fish, but he was still able to have dinner with his friends. As a teaching activity, each student could come up with their ideal dinner they would have with friends and how they would go about serving that dinner.
