So, I'll preface my next statement by saying that I feel really awkward making this observation from a position of White privilege. But this book does a great job showing that often one of the best ways to help overcome prejudice and xenophobia is to reach out and find something in common. That's what this book is really all about. Thje narrator, Reenie, goes fishing with her mother. They have the ritual down, and seem to just send the fish flying into their hands, but nearby Peter Troop and his [...]

This story centers on a young girl living in the Jim Crow South. A book about segregation and pride during the 1960’s, Reenie and her mama are both African American who find enjoyment in casual fishing. They often go to the banks of the Jim Crow River. They brought their fishing poles and their corn bait as they would sit and wait for a carp to bite the line. Often times a man named Mr. Troop and his son Peter would tend to come to the river as well. Reenie and her mama loved fishing for fun, [...]

Rennie and her mother go to fish, always in the same place. Often they are accompanied by Peter Troop and his father. Now the Troop men do not accompany Rennie and her mother on purpose. Actually, they do not speak because Rennie is black and the men are white. The Troop guys fish out of necessity daily, just trying to catch enough food for dinner, while Rennie and her mother fish more for fun and to be peaceful. Despite Rennie not being allowed to speak to Peter she goes over to him while his f [...]

Reenie and her mother often go fishing together. Usually at the river, they run into Mr. Troop and his son Peter. Reenie and he mother never interact with the Troops because the Troops are a white family, and in the Jim Crow South interacting with a family of another race definitely goes against the societal norm. While fishing, Reenie seems to be having all the luck and Peter is catching nothing. Reenie notices Peter's discouragement and decides to breach the societal norm to help Peter catch a [...]

Fishing Day is story told about the separation of blacks and whites. It is told during the time of Jim Crow Laws and this story can be used when the curriculum is to learn about this separation that took place in our country at one point. This story is told about two different families that go down to the river to fish. One family is black, and one is white and they are on opposite sides of the river due to the laws. Rennie the young girl doesn't understand at the time why it I the way it is, bu [...]

Reenie and her mother love to spend time along the banks of the river, slowly, methodically bringing the fish to them. Catching them is fun. In the deep south, Jim Crow laws are enforced and white folk don't mingle or share with black folk.When Reenie notices that a white man and his son are having a difficult time catching fish, Reenie hopes the young man will set aside his pride and fear and will allow her to show him how to catch food.Reenie's mother told her that they fish for fun, but sadly [...]

Most Jim Crow/civil rights books retain the white characters as the heroes--either working against prejudice or as the actors doing the befriending of those who are oppressed. Pinkney's story of a girl's interactions along a fishing creek clearly delineates oppressive, systemic power structures while giving the main character agency as she interacts with her white counterpart. The story can be read as one of simple kindness, or, more accurately, as one way that a girl acted counter to the norms [...]

This book is about a girl who looks forward to fishing day. She learns how to comprehend her racial status in the world. She also learns how to get along with a Caucasian boy who fishes at the same time as she does. I think that this book would be good to use in the classroom during a conversation about race relations and history. This would also be a book that I would include in my classroom library due to its context.

1. Fishing Day by Andrea Davis Pinkney 2. Awards: none for this book 3. Genre: Diversity-Inclusion 4. Setting: Riverbank of Jim Crow River during times of "separate but equal" 5. This book is based during a time in history where prejudice was at large. This could be used in a history lesson when studying Black history and "separate but equal". We could also uses this as a lesson to relate to others and how we are all equal.

Stunningly good: this story is completely accessible, and illustrates visually and textually the message it intends to impart without at any point stating it outright. That makes Fishing Day a perfect conversation point with readers. It illustrates life in Jim Crow south without ever teaching anything, in a didactic sense of the word.

This book was about a little girl who went fishing on a certain day with her mother. They end up nearing some white people who are not so kind to the black ladies. The little girl choose to share her knowledge on fishing with the little boy who is not catching anything, To become a good person we need to show children that color is on skin deep.

I liked this book because it was a historical fiction book about something not often addressed in schools: the Jim Crow south before the 1960's. I liked that the story brought together two children from different backgrounds and taught them both that no matter where you come from, everyone is the same on the inside. I would like to have this book in my classroom to teach about equality.

This is a great book that teaches children to treat others how you want to be treated. It mentions the idea of racism and how people acted towards each other, but leaves each child with a positive message.
