This fiction book is about a boy and his grandfather canoeing on a lake. In this book there are 3 stories. The first is about the beauty of the lake they are canoeing on. The second is about hiking as the sun rises, and the third is about hiking and finding shelter as the sun sets. The main theme of this book is learning how to respect nature and find his own place in the world. This book has notable features such as descriptive illustrations. I would use this book as an instructional application to introduce the topic of respect and learning about yourself. ( )

This is a book filled with love of the environment and respect for all iving things that share this universe. Great Book for all kids and adults too! I would defiantly recomend this book for people to read. I would defiantly read this book to my students because I feel that they need to know that the best family times come when you are in nature.

Morning on the Lake is a story about a Ojibway boy and his grandfather. The story takes you on a journey with the boy as he travels with his grandfather to his special place. Relationships are very important in this culture and the boy wants to experience the woods as his grandfather has. The boy and his grandfather travel together learning about love, trust, and nature.

This story is an amazing example of family and love. The illustrations are well crafted and help the reader to understand the respect the boy and his grandfather have for nature and each other. Readers can learn a lot about this culture by reading this book.

After reading the book students can complete a journal entry where they talk about a special relationship they share with an older family member or friend. ( )

A boy spends the day with his grandfather. They spend some time on the lake, they see a loon. Next they climb a cliff and see an eagle. Then the boy comes face to face with a wolf but is brave enough to not run, the wolf turns and goes the other way. On the way home the boy is so tired the grandfather has to carry him.

I loved this book because it shows the special bond that exists between a grandfather and grandson.

I would use this book around grandparent’s day. I would have the student’s think about a grandfather or someone that is special to them. I would have the students list the things that make that person special to him or her. Finally I would have the student compose a letter to that person, telling the person why he or she is special to the student.
