Ferryboat Ride!by Anne F. Rockwell, Maggie Smith (Illustrator)
A young girl describes her ferryboat ride as she travels to her summer island home: cars and trucks rattle onto the boat, a forklift brings heavy cartons aboard, the engines start to rumble and throb, and finally the captain blows his whistle and steers the ferry out of the harbor. Once the ferry is under way, the girl watches the water, feeds the gulls, and peers through the fog as the foghorn blasts. By the time the ferry pulls up to the island pier, readers will want to find a ferry of their own to ride. Simple, straightforward language and vibrant watercolor illustrations perfectly capture the magic of this unique form of transportation.
