Kids Boating Books


Sometimes, as much as we'd like to be out in the boat, we just can't. Sometimes it's raining or we're not at the cottage and sometimes it's even winter.  We've made a list of our favourite boating books for those days that you'd like to be on the water but you can't.  Curl up with one of these on the next rainy summer day and escape into the world of water and imagination.
