The little boat by Kathy Henderson illustrated by Patrick Benson
"On sailed the little boat all alone and the further it sailed the bigger grew the ocean until all around was sea and not a sign of land not a leaf not a bird not a sound just the wind"
The little boats journeys on through storms until it is grabbed by a great fish and then spat out. The little boat eventually washes up on a new shore where is it found by a girl and "all day long she splashed and and she played with the boat she'd found at the edge of the sea singing 'We are unsinkable my boat and me!"
The little boat is a wonderful book to read aloud and the illustrations perfectly capture the journey of the boat, the changing landscapes and the immense size of the oceans around the world.
