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.

Lemony Snickers
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.
