The powerful little tugboat can do big jobs–such as pulling an ocean liner, a cargo ship, barges, even a bridge! It maneuvers the tall ships and tugs the fireworks barge. Stunning paintings of vibrant harbor scenes in every kind of weather illustrate an accessible, informational text written especially for emergent readers. A table of contents and back matter supplement the fun learning experience.
“Children who love boats will thrill at the sights and see that small size does not preclude great strength.”—Kirkus Reviews “Artwork created with graphite pencil and digital tools adds a hazy glow and plays with perspective as the little boat bobs on the vast ocean. This title is a strong read-aloud for those looking to add transportation books to their collections.”—School Library Journal “Garland’s colorful book highlights not only the many services a tugboat provides but also the variety of jobs a boat’s captain and her crew are likely to tackle on an average shift. . . . This book will be tugged around quite a bit.”—Booklist
