Need some great, beginner-level books on fishing. Bonus points if they're in Spanish.

The fishing bug has bit my SO hard. However, no one has ever bothered to explain to him how beyond, 'this is a hook, here's a rod, knock yourself out.' His birthday is coming up, and I'd like to get him a book that explained a little bit more. Things like, why one bait doesn't fit all, how fishing is different in lakes vs. rivers, vs. the sea, how to catch different types of fish living in the same area, why sinkers sometimes and why bobbers other times...stuff like that. The tricky part is, he's not an avid reader to begin with, and he's only somewhat literate in English.
So: 1) What are your favorite practical books on fishing for kids.
2) Bonus points if its in Spanish (along with notes about how to get it, since I have no idea where the Hispanic populations of central Virginia [U.S.A.] is buying their books).
