Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–In a book similar to their Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo (Hyperion, 1999), Lewis and Kirk combine rhythmic text, descriptive language, and colorful pseudo-realistic artwork to depict the adventures of a toy tugboat. From early morning (Cast off!/Anchors aweigh./Aye, aye, Captain./Busy day!) to evening (Day is over. Moon shines bright./Engine rumbles through the night), the hardworking vessel scoots, splashes, pushes, and pulls through a busy day. Youngsters will appreciate the rhyming text and quickly learn the refrain, which changes slightly with each verse. Illustrations in bright primary colors and geometrical shapes match the playful verse. The toylike quality of the boats, cargo, and crew becomes more apparent with each page, so it is no surprise when the bathtub setting is revealed. In the end, a smiling, freshly washed, pajama-clad youngster is taken off to bed, while his still-dripping playthings rest contentedly at tubs edge. The simplicity of both narrative and pictures makes this story a strong choice for children.–Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH

Not as good as chugga chugga choo choo, which both of my kids love. The pictures are just as good, but the text is not as dynamic.

I am dismayed to see that this book does not have a 5-star average rating on amazon. This is one of my one-year-old son's absolute favorites - the story is darling (for me, even more endearing than the better-known "Chugga Chugga Choo Choo" by the same author). The book follows a heroic little tugboat as it goes about its daily tasks - moving barges, hauling cargo, etc. Slowly, as you proceed through the story, rubber ducks and bars of soap start appearing among the more realistic maritime imagery. In the end, it turns out the tugboat is a beloved bath toy of a little boy who returns to play with it night after night in the tub.

I love these books by Kevin Lewis and Daniel Kirk. They perfectly capture the incredible power of young imaginations and the sincere joy found in childhood play. Young readers will love the beautiful colorful images and the repetitive sounds ("toot-toot" and "scoot-scoot"). And most adults will find this book very well-written and easy-to-read and will find the story incredibly touching.

Format: Board book
We lOVE this book! We haven't read the other Lewis/Kirk books, so don't have them to compare, but on its own this book has been an all time favorite in our house! Tugga tugga tug boat, push and pull and float boat...I think I have all of the words memorized! The words are simple and very appropriate for toddlers. I just wish it came in board book form so I could let my one year old look at the book without my close supervision. So, if some say this book isn't nearly as good as the other Lewis/Kirk books, then we look forward to reading those as well!

Checked this book out at the library for my 11 month old and it was an instant hit. The story is short and sweet, making this a perfect anytime or bedtime read. The book has a nice rhythm and reading it with added high-pitched "toot toot"s and "scoot scoot"s makes it quite engaging. Plus, my little one enjoys identifying the rubber ducks, birds, boats, etc on every page. She begs to read this over and over again... book goes back to library tomorrow, but we be picking up our very own copy.
I have Chugga Chugga Choo Choo, but my baby girl doesn't seem as interested in that yet...

This is an excellent book! We bought it for our son, but soon after our daughter was born and now she just adores it. It is fun to read too. The illustrations are beautiful and repetitive so I can ask my girl where things like the rubber duckie and the buoy are on several pages and she points to them. We bought this before knowing about Chugga Chugga Choo Choo and absolutely love it!

I cannot get enough of the books from these two. The pictures, the wording - the way it rhymes. It's become a morning, naptime, and nuh-nite staple. They almost read like sing-song making them easy to memorize. I love that they play out the day from beginning to nighttime.
My son absolutely adores them. I cannot wait for them to come out with an airplane one - as he loves the train and the tugboat!

My 2 year old is fascinated by this book! Again, Kevin Lewis brings us a vivid book that is wonderfully written. The refrain of "Tugga-tugga-tugboat" is a catchy one, and my son can't get enough of it. Highly recommended.
