This is a simple picture book about a boy sitting on a couch imagining that the couch is a raft, canoe, ship, ocean liner.
After reading it through once I didn’t think too much of it. It is a fine book, but nothing that blew me away. My son, however, had me reread this book with him four times. The only reason we didn’t go for a fifth is that it was his nap time. I am sure we’ll be looking at the book again once he wakes up.
The more times I read through this book, the more I liked it. There’s a lot to talk about in the pictures and I won’t be surprised if my son turns our couch into some kind of flotation vessel.
Oh, full disclosure: My son LOVES the vacuum cleaner. He’s loved it since he was a baby. As soon as he learned to walk he wanted to vacuum — and there is a vacuum cleaner at the end of this book. Boats + vacuum cleaners = A real win with my son. His passion for vacuum cleaners may be influencing his love and interest in this book.
