RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, May 9, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Belle Isle Books of Richmond, Virginia, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of a new children’s picture book, ‘Elroy’s Remarkable Day Fishing,’ written by Emily Hanson Collis and illustrated by Jeanne Conway.

This feel-good tale for children ages two to six invites readers to come along with Elroy, a young boy, as he goes on his very first fishing trip. Armed with a new fishing hat, fishing tackle, and a box full of squirmy bait, Elroy sets out with his father and grandfather on their little blue boat, eager to reach their fishing spot. But Elroy will need more than gear to fish—he’ll also need a boatload of patience! Despite a number of mishaps, with words of wisdom and advice from his caring family members, Elroy is certain to be able to catch a fish. It’s going to be a remarkable day!

Filled with expressive watercolor illustrations that introduce the fun of fishing to readers who are ready to take their own first fishing trips, ‘Elroy’s Remarkable Day Fishing’ is scheduled for release on May 16, 2024.

‘Elroy is thrilled to spend the day with his dad and grandpa. He will be fishing for the first time! He had no idea there would be so much to learn. Through playful repetition and fun-to-read-aloud rhyming text, readers will enjoy watching Elroy’s curiosity create charming, wonder-filled circumstances where he is reminded to use patience and perseverance during a remarkable day’s fishing adventure.’
