"Fishing with Balloons" is a phonetically controlled chapter book written by an experienced teacher. In it, we meet Sam, a likeable 10-year-old, and his 85-year-old fishing friend Zo, who shows him how a physical disability is not a barrier to his aspirations. Clinging to his dream, Sam learns about friendship, trust, courage, and the power of imagination. Within a story that holds developing readers' interest, this book emphasizes the phonetic families of consonant-l-e words with suffixes and words ending in "-ment".
Midwest Book Review calls it a "warm-hearted story" and says that it is "written in such a manner that nearly all its vocabulary is only one or two syllables long, so as to be accessible to young readers as low as grade three."
