Busy Boats

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

In Susan Stegall's Busy Boats, the harbour is bustling with all kinds of boats, from yachts to rowing boats to ocean liners. The fishermen are setting out to sea, the ferry boats are sailing back and forth, the freighters are being loaded with cargo and all the while the seagulls are hovering overhead.

The creator of Rattle and Rap and The Life of a Car turns her attention to boats in this new book, which is sure to be enjoyed by younger children. Steggall's collaged illustrations are full of movement and vivid colour, enhancing the rhythmic flow of the text. With plenty to look at in the pictures, this is a great book for sharing and reading aloud.
