Praise for Tugboat "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
