Workboats

By Jan Adkins

A tale of the sea without varnish and polished brass. The characters in this miniature narrative are the rough and purpose-built workboats that live with the weather and the hard realities of the water. A boatyard owner's concern for a lost fisherman reverberates through the working community of watermen, giving us an insider's glimpse of the vessels and seafolk that work the sea for a living. This is a read-aloud book with a wealth of "I see" details that will call for as much parent-child sharing as reading. Bound to be a favorite for years.

Recommended for ages 5 and up.
