Sail Away with Me
Jane Collins-Philippe loves the sea – after all she has spent many years living on a sailboat – and she has collected verses old and new to share her understanding and affection. Some of the poems will be familiar, like Eugene Field's “Wynken, Blynken and Nod.” Others are from Collins-Philippe's own pen and are sure to become favorites. Who could resist a poem about a ship with a hippo for a captain and a giraffe named Joyce for a lookout?
Laura Beingessner's charming art is the perfect complement to a collection that will delight children, whether they are old salts or landlubbers.
A note from the author: OOPS! Credit for Baby's Boat on the very last page of my book should have gone to Ridley and Gaynor who penned it in 1898. I wouldn't want to take credit for something I didn't write. Besides, that would make me very old indeed!
