Little Tug

Roaring Brook/Neal Porter Bks. 2015. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781626721241.
Baby/Toddler—This charming story with its simple text and soothing graphic-style artwork makes a graceful transition from picture book to board book format. Little Tug may not be the tallest, fastest, or biggest boat in the harbor, but he proves his worth in multiple ways, and the other vessels appreciate his efforts. The sweetly personified boats and the message that small can still be mighty is a satisfying one to share over and over again.
