Storytime: Alphabet Boats with Ryan O'Rourke

Storytime special guest illustrator Ryan O'Rourke visits to share his book, Alphabet Boats!

Set sail and learn the ABCs with a boat for each letter. Discover twenty-six types of vessels, from the more common--canoe and motorboat--to the unusual--umiak and Q-boat. Just like in Alphabet Trucks and Alphabet Trains, colorful art includes the letters of the alphabet hidden (and not-so-hidden) in supporting roles in the illustrations. The text features familiar as well as unusual boats from around the world, packing in tons of instant kid appeal, and upper and lowercase letters are integrated into the action of the art rather than solely in the typography. (Back matter includes age-appropriate facts about each featured boat.)

Everyone’s heard of a tow truck. And a pickup truck. An ice-cream truck? Of course! But what about a quint truck? A lowboy truck? A knuckle-boom truck? Readers will learn about these kinds of trucks—and many more—while learning the alphabet in ALPHABET TRUCKS.
