Can you guess all the boats in this fold-out book? As each flap unfolds a new clue is revealed. Starting with the tiny rowboat to the mighty ocean liner, readers are given visual as well as textual clues. Each page folds out into a large square showing the answer to the nautical riddle. This is a beautifully designed book for boat lovers of all ages.

A brightly colored, simply worded lift-the-flaps book. This could be a great book for introducing youngsters to boats and boating.

A wonderful book format for 3-5 year olds. Each flap of the book asks a question and you unfold it to reveal the answer. Clever, fun, great illustrations!

I need to explore others in this series - Simms Taback's books.

A giant fold out poster book that helps readers guess the boat being described through a series of clues. Bold artwork and a review of all boats on the last page. Not knowing much about boats I learned a few things from this board book :) Recommended for toddler and preschoolers.

A fun "guess who" picture book for those young boat enthusiasts. Interactive with fold out pages and nice, simple illustrations giving hints about which type of boat will be fully displayed.

Fun for the Simms Taback fans but for something so simple, it sure gets messed up. In describing parts of a boat, they are hard clues--something most boats have. And the last one isn't even a boat.
