A toy boat gets separated from its owner and has an adventure on the high seas.
The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl
This book is gorgeously illustrated and is simultaneously a fun "boat book"—showcasing lots of different kinds of boats with some of their attributes—while also conveying a much deeper and more moving message about independence, letting go, and a deep friendship. This really resonated with me in terms of a parent-child relationship, and how that bond can be strengthened if you let go a little but remain a safe place to always return to.
Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.
Toy Boat is a cute little book that makes me think a little bit of The Little Engine That Could. It's not quite as inspiring as that story, but I think little readers will love the chance to see different kinds of boats--from a ferry to a speedboat. The story is about kindness, looking out for others, and finding your way home.
