It is the May long weekend (Victoria Day) in Canada and boaters are out on the waters for the start-up of the season.  PRAIRIE GIRL is wondering if you have your copy of WHO’S the CAPTAIN? aboard your vessels? Remember what Pacific Yachting’s Book Reviewer (Cherie Thiessen) had to say,

“There’s something to resonate here for every sailor- or sailor wannabe, I’m betting.”

And then there is the endorsement from David Eggert (Director of Development and Relief Captain), SALTS Sail and Life Training Society- “Training Young People, By the Sea, for Life”,

“I loved the book. Great humor and fantastic illustrations.  Most certainly to be enjoyed by cruising families.”

Why is WHO’S the CAPTAIN? a must have for all boating families?

WHO’S the CAPTAIN? is a book that will entertain children (ages 6+) and all boaters. A parent/grandparent will enjoy cozying-up with their little one and sharing the cartoon vignettes in the context of family sailing vacations. What fun guessing the meaning of the nautical words within the cleverly creative cartoons (and then affirming their answers with the sassy definitions)! Middle Grade kids (ages 8-12) will relate to all the comical mishaps on the water and the attitudes of family members sailing together. Of course, the lines can blur when identifying who really is or should be the CAPTAIN
