Praise For Boat Book

"We see various kinds of sailboats and motor boats, 'boats that help us when there is trouble' (fireboats, police boats, Coast Guard boats), as well as the inevitable 'boats that carry heavy loads,' Moreover, there are sailboats racing, and speedboats racing--and they really do look it. (The Coast Guard boat is coming to rescue a woman with an overturned canoe.)"—Kirkus Reviews
