School Library Journal - 04/01/2018 Toddler-PreS—Rhyming text and digital illustrations capture watertight conveyances of all shapes and sizes in this cheerful alphabet book. One to two sentences are spent on each letter of the alphabet all while describing a special type of boat. "K is for kayak, long and narrow to move faster. L is for lifeboat—rescue in case of disaster." An uncomplicated rhyme scheme helps the story become a read-aloud and encourages young readers to try some of the harder words like moor or shoal. Delightful digital illustrations showcase the letter in various uppercase and lowercase forms throughout each page, and children will delight in finding the letters on each page. VERDICT A first purchase for libraries looking to expand their ABC or transportation shelves.—Brooke Newberry, La Crosse Public Library, WI - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
