How to Catch a Keeper! will give kids in grades 2-3 a Maine lobster boat experience, and follows the adventures of Luke and Layla as they take a trip to the Maine coast and explore its many ways to play.


This story is really a Maine celebration in disguise, as their father outlines the biking, hiking, museum, and lighthouse viewing opportunities before the family settles on taking the Lucky Catch boat tour.


Gorgeous paintings by Connie Rand provide captivating views of all the Maine scenes mentioned by Stephanie Mulligan as the story teaches readers about lobster fishing, using lilting rhymes that invite attention and interest and lend nicely to read-aloud exploration. 


From how to catch a lobster to measuring it for its legal harvesting and understanding the lobster's natural history, How to Catch a Keeper! is specific, clear, based on a real lobster boat's operations, and invites kids to appreciate and understand both the lobster's world and the appeal of Maine.


Local and science terminology are reviewed in a finely-illustrated "Lobstering Lingo" section at the end, while the story's rich descriptions and visuals provide a standout read highly recommended for parents and children interested in a lively story about Maine and lobster operations.                                      - Midwest Book Review
5 Stars
My son loved this book. Loved the flow of the story mixed in with the facts and the glossary in the back. So much more than a story book.
