How does it feel to be a boat

By James Kwan

ISBN 9780544715332

HMH Kids

Through smooth and stormy seas

Sometimes being a boat is full of adventures and it’s nothing but smooth sailing on the high seas, but sometimes arguing passengers can take you off course. When you run aground, will their teamwork give you the strength to make it through? 

My school library has Dear Yeti  which is a delightful picture book from James Kwan so I just know this new one will be well worth adding to our collection. The trailer is kind of cool with James Kwan becoming part of the story and weaving his way through the pages of the book.  Aimed at younger readers but I suspect parents and grandparents will love this too.

I love this quote from the Kirkus review which certainly piques my interest as a message we want to encourage with our readers.

This poignant yet lighthearted affirmation asserts the uniqueness of each individual and reassures readers that while life is complex, sometimes messy, and even occasionally catastrophic, it is all part of the journey.
