" A curious little book. The illustrations are rich and the personal touch with boats having eyes are wonderful. A sad story of many not helping the little boat and only one who understands his loneliness and being the little guy. For the age group this targets, their not going to see that message adult readers do. A lovely read, recommended! " said.

" This book is amazing. At our latest visit-our local librarian recommended it to me for my son. The illustrations are stunning and the story of a toy boat's "journey home" hit with my son who has a closeness to certain toys of his own. We have read it at least 3 times a day for four days. GET IT FOR XMAS!!! " said.

" I don't often give 5 stars to books of any kind. This book has such a sweet story about a little boy and his toy boat he makes out of random "parts". It ends up sailing away at the beginning of the book, then sails back at the end. I loved the story a mommy, especially of a mother of little boys, but the illustrations are also gorgeous. This one is a keeper! " said.

" Cute book. My 3 year old enjoyed it quite a bit. The boy never lets the boat's string go. The boat would like to be let go. Finally, a storm blows the boat out of the boy's hand. Eventually, they reunite and the boy doesn't hold the boat back so much, but the boat always comes back. Nice moral and the illustrations are good too. " said.

" Henry loves this one. He studies the makings of the boat (spool of thread, stick, can) on the endpapers before reading it each time. My only issue is, why does the mom have to be the reason the boy drops the string and the boat is lost in the first place? Nice going, Mom. I change the text when I read it so the mom isn't such the bad guy. Geez. " said.

" This book was a really sweet story about a boy who loses his boat and gets it back again. It only got a three from me because although the writing was wonderful the illustrations didn't seem to do the story justice. I'm not exactly sure what was wrong with them, they just didn't work for me....still a cute book. " said.

" Sweet story, good lessons but beautiful illustrations. Story of a little boy who made a toy boat. He loves it so much he bathes and sleeps with it. He takes it out to the lake and sails it while holding onto its string. We also hear from the boat that he wants to be out with the other boats. Of course the boat ends up venturing out but learns a lesson. The boy also learns a lesson about holding on to things. " said.

" He loves it. The beautiful art work of Loren Long and a metaphorical story about letting your children take appropriate risks and not being afraid to lose them. Story about a boy who builds a boat and loses it out at sea when he lets the string out too long. He is very sad and the boat goes through rough seas. Then the boat comes back home with the waves and help from a tug. The boy does not keep his boat at home, he lets him out to sea again. Very nice story. " said.
