9780887768422: Sail Away with Me

Jane Collins-Philippe loves the sea – after all she has spent many years living on a sailboat – and she has collected verses old and new to share her understanding and affection. Some of the poems will be familiar, like Eugene Field’s “Wynken, Blynken and Nod.” Others are from Collins-Philippe’s own pen and are sure to become favorites. Who could resist a poem about a ship with a hippo for a captain and a giraffe named Joyce for a lookout?

Laura Beingessner’s charming art is the perfect complement to a collection that will delight children, whether they are old salts or landlubbers.
A note from the author: OOPS! Credit for Baby’s Boat on the very last page of my book should have gone to Ridley and Gaynor who penned it in 1898. I wouldn’t want to take credit for something I didn’t write. Besides, that would make me very old indeed!

About the Author:

JANE COLLINS-PHILIPPE grew up in Toronto and was a teacher. She became a committed and effective advocate for people with disabilities and worked closely with People First, an organization formed and run by people with developmental disabilities. For over twenty years, she has lived life at sea on a sailboat with her husband, splitting her time between the Mediterranean and France.

LAURA BEINGESSNER has loved to draw and paint ever since she was a little girl. She is the illustrator of several books for children including Our Corner Grocery Store by Joanne Shwartz and If the Shoe Fits, a New York Public Library’s 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing pick. She lives in Toronto with her husband and son.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 4—Ten traditional or classic verses are followed by 13 original poems in this themed collection. Most of the older ones, including "My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean" and "The Owl and the Pussycat," can be easily found elsewhere. The new verses vary in quality. Some are charming; in "Sailing," "A white moon sets our sails alight/As we follow the sea through the indigo night/Stars, like eyes, will help us see...." Others, like "Cruising," lack the sharp detail and originality good poetry requires: "Traveling the world from/Wonder to wonder;/To countries small/And countries grand,/They find something special/In every land." From children playing on the beach to a mermaid luxuriating in her watery home, the watercolor illustrations depict characters and scenes in a traditional yet whimsical way. Larger collections with a strong interest in nautical topics may want to add this one.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
