Overview

Alphabet Boats by Samantha R. Vamos, Ryan O'Rourke

Set sail and learn the ABCs with a boat for each letter!

Discover twenty-six types of vessels, from the more common—canoe and motorboat—to the unusual—umiak and Q-boat. Just like in Alphabet Trucks and Alphabet Trains, colorful art includes the letters of the alphabet hidden (and not-so-hidden) in supporting roles in the illustrations. The text features familiar as well as unusual boats from around the world, packing in tons of instant kid appeal, and upper and lowercase letters are integrated into the action of the art rather than solely in the typography. Back matter includes age-appropriate facts about each featured boat.
