This boat story is of an adventure on the big seas, much more exciting than the Wisconsin Duck rides. However, it fits beautifully with our general interest in boats and completely entranced our toddlers.
This is the story of a little boat that goes on an adventure out on the big sea. Huge waves, sea creatures, and terrible storms. The tiny boat bravely perseveres and succeeds over these obstacles. The adventures are all described with simple text and stunning illustrations. Thomas Docherty beautifully contrasts the smallness of the boat with the immense-ness of the ocean, which parallels the smallness of a young child and the huge world around them. A tale to inspire the braveness in everyone.
