A delightful little A-Z book for those who love boats.

Each letter relates to something nautical eg R is for Radar, C is for Compass, and K is for Keel. The letter is displayed prominently on the page in both capital and lower case forms. It covers all types of boats from dingy's to sail boats; as well as things to do with boats such as horns, life vests, and oars.

There is a little poem that goes with the letter being featured. The poems are simple and rhyme while explaining what the item being featured does.

The artwork is simple and cute. But effectively conveys what the subject is on each page.

This book would be a must for families who are big on boats, yachts, ships etc and anyone whose little ones adore boats. It is very educational and a great introduction to boating terms and water safety.
