Book Review: Following a fishing boat that leaves port in the morning and returns in the afternoon, this visual feast of a book illustrates many of the vessels to be seen in a typical harbour. From freighters being loaded with cargo, lifeboats, a ferry, speed boats, rowing boats and yachts, to an ocean liner, this is a book that celebrates the variety and beauty of boats and ships of every kind. Accompanied by a rhyming and rhythmic text that will delight the youngest readers, this is a great book for adults and young children to share.The pictures are bursting with colour ...An information story as interesting as lively as this will reinforce in young minds the message that print books can be exciting and relevant.' - (Review from Books for Keeps).

This book may nicely compliment a transportation theme

Until the next read insha'Allaah....
