Last year, SHARP Literacy, Inc. published a significantly important book for all future generations. A Great Lakes Adventure: Salmon’s Journey Home tells the story of Salmon searching for the place of his birth. On his journey Salmon meets Turtle, Sturgeon, and other characters, which together learn and relate lessons that emphasize the importance of clean water for our future, and the wise use of our Great Lakes water resources.
Used in second grade science curriculum focused on weather, water and the environment, the book reinforces the important environmental and ecological lessons that should be instilled in all of today’s youth, as growing freshwater issues impact more and more of the global population. At the end of the story, although Salmon relates that he has found treasure in the resources of the Great Lakes, he learns that his friendship with Turtle is his real treasure.
Dean Amhaus, President & CEO, The Water Council endorsed A Great Lakes Adventure: Salmon’s Journey Home in the book’s foreword, concluding with the thought, “The work of developing our water resources to their full potential is a process that must continue into the future; it is not a one-time undertaking.”
While this book is intended to be read by second through fifth grade students interested in the life cycle of the salmon and turtles, weather, the water cycle, the environment, and clean water, it truly is a book for all ages, including students of all levels, and adults.
