Whose Boat? Reviews

"The framing of "whose boat?" rather than "what boat?" seems a bit of an odd choice, but this is certainly an informative book (each facing page naming various elements of the boat, including hawser and Kort nozzle) -- and the "whose boat?" framing allows the lift-the-flap to have someone explaining a bit about how they use the boat.

I appreciate that the folks on the boats are both men and women, with both light and dark skin tones. The book doesn't fully lean in to have people in wheelchairs, people in hijab, etc. -- but boating can often be thought of as primarily a white dude's domain, so I appreciate the book's efforts, even if I wish it did more.

" Definitely not geared to the very young set, but the board book format suits this subject matter and illustrations well. I enjoyed this book and learned some useful information about boats! This is the same format as Whose Tools? by the same author and is just as good. I will look for the other book in this little series, Whose Truck?, and check it out soon. " said.

" This book reminds me of the Blippi boats song. " said.

" I enjoyed this more than I expected. The rhymes, the rhythm, the gate-fold pages -- this would make a great storytime book for younger readers. Pictures identify the parts of particular types of boats (ferry, lifeboat, etc.) and the reader guesses who runs or works on that type of boat. Delightful! " said.

" This is a flip-up board book about boats. A little complicated, I think...simpler boats would have been better. " said.

" lobsterperson? picturing something completely different than a gender inclusive term for a lobster fisherman.... like a human with a lobster's head and claws... LOL " said.

" This is a hard guessing book if you don't know the name of all the names of all the different types of helmsmen! " said.

"Do you know all the people who work in the harbor? This lift the page book gives a clue about the boat they use, shows a labeled picture of the boat's parts and then when you lift the page you see the job of the person who works on the boat. The harbormaster, the tugboat pilot, the car ferry captain and 3 more.

For children who love boats, this is a great board book. The labeled parts are accurate in informative, and it's good to learn about all the different boats. So much on each page and fun to guess the job.
