August 22nd, 2011 by Eliza Eliza

I hope you are enjoying these late days of summer and are maybe squeezing in a last summer trip before September comes. How about a trip to the water? Here are a few picture books that feature a whole variety of boats – ferries, canoes, rowboats, tugboats and even a pirate ship! Can you name all of the books below? Put your guesses in the comments below and I’ll be back on Friday with the answers. Anchors away!
