Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
As he has done with many other subjects (ocean, bugs, airplanes), Pallotta sails into the seas and reefs together twenty six vessels. From an aircraft carrier to an inflatable Zodiac there are boats from all over the world, past and present. With each letter of the alphabet represented in upper and lower case, there is a brief description of the featured boat. A great way to learn the ABCs and get up to speed on boating too.
