MyThoughts on Journalof a Big Mouth Bass
By:Debbie Sue Bass Williamson
Asa child I seemed to be more drawn to hang out with the boys than Iwas the girls. We spent our summers at the creek catching crawfish,or playing capture the flag in the empty field behind us. What ablast I use to have with those kids!
Inthis book I found Debbie to me so much like me! Minus the red hairand freckles everything else seemed to be my life! I love how theauthor has based the main character on herself and is able to writethe experiences perfectly from the perspective of a child.
Ifound Debbie to be a captivating character and for the past few weekshave read a few pages a night to my six year old daughter. We haveshared many laughs together reading this story and at the same timethis book has opened many things up for discussion. For example wewere able to spend and entire night talking about the seriousness ofstarting fires and the consequences that could happen…why did wetalk about this? You will have to read the book to find out!
