If you want to know about boats, trust a sea dog to set you on course. In her latest picture book, Sea Dog Boats, award-winning children’s book author and illustrator Astrid Sheckels has created a whole raft of sea dogs to help young readers begin their ABC’s and their nautical explorations. Filled with boats (and sea dogs) from all over the world and told in whimsical rhyme, children will discover vessels from air boats to rafts and coracles to schooners. During this special storytime, Astrid Sheckels will read Sea Dog Boats, answer questions, and do a drawing demonstration.
