5.0 out of 5 stars If I had a Little Boat March 22, 2013
Format:Paperback
My Review: A story about a little girl who wish if she had a little boat and what she will do. She will let it sail out to sea, ride the big waves, Glide above an octopus, tumble through a marine maze, and skim between the starfish, leave the ocean's blue and travel back home to the little girl. Every little child would love this rhyming book with large text. The illustrations are captivating and fun. I highly recommend this book.

I got this for my 1-1/2 year old grandson and he loves it. Great illustrations with the little boat appearing somewhere on each full page which makes him look for it. He ask for it every night.

I downloaded If I had a Little Boat to read with my six year old daughter, she loved the whimsical illustrations! It is a perfect quick bedtime story to read to young kids. The story may be short, but even I found myself getting lost in the illustrations. A beautifully well done ebook to share with your children! I will be watching for more from Calee Lee!

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable detailed illustration and a sweet story. June 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's something very captivating about this short read. I think it's the sense of imagination and travel the text leaves you with. The illustrations are very detailed and finding the little red boat amongst all of the other creatures in the sea could be a game as you flip the pages. It's a perfect length for a story time that needs to be quick and I can easily see a child finding new aspects to the artwork to fall in love with each time. There's so much to take in, especially on the blue whale. Every fish in the sea has their own expression and personality. A mini-masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best children's books on Kindle! August 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The illustrations and rhyming verse in this little book are unique and engaging. This is one of the few e-books my class of 2 & 3 year-olds enjoyed reading with me over and over. The formatting of the book is great too. Many of the children's e-books I've purchased are poorly formatted but not this one. The illustrations fill the screen with the words clearly visible and organized on the same page. It's an endearing book I recommend for all parents and teachers of young children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kids book about boat with gorgeous illustrations April 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the kindle version of this book. The illustrations are beautifully done and there is but one sentence of text per page making this a delightful picture book for children. In the kindle version there is a clickable list of many other children's books so don't be put off by the actual length of the book. There are only 21 or so pages of reading. The tale is about a little girl who wants a boat and all the things she would do if she had one. I recommend this book for parents of kids 4-8.
