Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
I had intended only to skim the first paragraph or two when Kids for Sail arrived-just enough to get a feel for the book; I'd read it later, when I had time. Two hours later, I finished the breathtaking true-adventure story I couldn't put down sooner. It begins as nine-year-old Sam and his younger brother learn that in one year, the family home will be a 40-foot sailboat on which their parents (who had never done anything like it) would sail them from British Columbia to New Zealand via Hawaii, the Line Islands, and Samoa, Tonga and Fiji. Pamela Bendall's third person account, which alternates between excerpts from son and co-author Sam's written-en-route diary and school reports, is a chronicle that will have you and your youngsters at one with the four as they experience the exhausting, exhilarating, enriching, and occasionally life-threatening expedition that depended upon every family member's cooperation to succeed.
