From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2—For those who love the water and those who watch what floats, this poetically inspired look at vessels is the watery sequel to the author's Planes Fly! (S.& S., 2013). While colorful images present each type of boat, text extends the vocabulary well past boat parts (keel, hull, bow, stern, bilge, beam, fore, aft, sail, engine, paddle, oar, poop-deck, head, bridge, galley) to a global adventure of small and large crafts (gondola, skiff, bilibili, sampan, junk, coracle, dinghy). Each page presents a picture "from shore to shore" through digital images and rhyming text. Perspectives change along a river, through the water, under the waves, from the birds above to a cross-view of the galley below, with a soft texture in imitation of the aquatic surroundings. From the smallest toy boat to an ocean liner, this book has all vessel sizes covered, enough to convince readers to stretch out, float, and "be a boat." VERDICT A title both for the very young and those developing their interest in this topic.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX
