I was all hearts-for-eyes emoji over this book as soon as I picked it up in the bookstore, and I haven’t stopped loving it. My three-year-old feels the same way. It’s fun to look at and quick to read, making it easy to read over and over again. There’s a lot to discuss in it too—we like to identify specific places, talk about what the various people are doing, and notice opposites. Yes, we definitely love it a little extra because we live in the San Francisco Bay Area and the illustrations prominently feature the bridges, islands, buildings, and horizons we know and love, but children and adults from anywhere will enjoy the beautiful illustrations and descriptions of many different types of boats.
