Author Susan Gibbons Wolf has never forgotten her first trip to the Seattle waterfront and onto a ferry with her grandmother. The wonder of standing on the deck of a boat for the first time, viewing islands, sun-dappled water and all different kinds of boats was an awe-inspiring adventure for a small child. P.S. Boats, Around Puget Sound is a celebration of the sights and sounds of that first trip. She wanted to create a book that would reflect the beauty of the Pacific Northwest with a natural curiosity of just one of its many elements — boats!
With award-winning artwork and a cheerful, rhyming text this lovely book is a treasure! Selected by the Washington County Library as a reward for its Young Reader Program, this is not your ordinary children’s book about boats! Suitable for children of all ages, beautiful watercolor illustrations of Pacific Northwest scenes are paired with bi-lingual (English/Spanish) text. Kids will enjoy this fun to read rhyming book as they learn what kind of boat each one is and what it does. Plus the same Spanish language text gives their language skills a taste for how Spanish speakers would talk about the same boats.
At the back of the book is a resource list of “Other Interesting Ports of Call.” Websites and places to take children are listed to enable learning more about boat building, sailing, Navy history, antique boats, Native American culture and the ecology of Puget Sound. With a hard cover, dust jacket and coated pages, this children’s picture book is a quality gift item and will become a beloved member in your home library.
