Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Learn about the various types of boats that ply the seas, rivers, and lakes. From something as simple as a dinghy or rowboat, to great ocean liners, Mitton and Parker introduce boats and boating. The captain gives the orders and the crew operates the sails. Cargo ships have big holds to store crates and other goods, while ferries have room in their holds for cars and trucks and passengers can ride on the deck above. There are some other types of watercraft that could be introduced, but this brief look may whet appetites and encourage kids to dip further into the subject of boats and ships. The glossary subtitle, "Boat Parts," does not seem consistent with what is presented nor is it extensive: a lighthouse is not a boat part, but it certainly might be considered part of the boating experience. 2005, Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin, Ages 2 to 5.
