DescriptionA little boy has a toy boat. He made it out of a can, a cork, a yellow pencil, and some white cloth. The boy and his boat are inseparable, until one day when the wind pushes the toy boat out into the wide lake. Alone now, the little boat must face fierce waves, a grumpy ferry, a sassy schooner, and a growling speed boat. How the little boat misses the boy! But if he is going to survive, he must figure a way to do it on his own. Loren Long has a timeless and magical touch. As he did with "The Little Engine That Could, " he creates a world of toys and children that go right to the soul. "Toy Boat" will sail into young hearts and stay there. Praise for TOY BOAT * "With plenty of buoyant charm and imaginative artwork, this contemporary "Little Toot" has an abundance of child appeal."--"Booklist," starred review "A resonant tale with wide appeal."--Publishers Weekly

Reviews for Toy Boat
A lovely book for every child, particularly young boys who like boats.
My son and I read this together at our local library duing a Storytime session when he was 3, and now he's 5 and he still loves this book.
The story follows a little toy boat who belongs to a loving boy. The boy has the boat attached to a string when he sails it in the lake, but the toy boat often wishes he could sail free. One day he does sail free and goes on to see how precious it was when he was always with the little boy. A worthwhile book for children. by Bonny Sisson
