Book Review - Tugboats by Michael Garland

Your preschooler will definitely enjoy seeing and learning about how little tugboats accomplish so many big jobs in Tugboat, by Michael Garland.  The bright, realistic illustrations will grab your child’s attention. Find how this little one helps get important things done that the huge boats, like ocean liners and cargo ships, couldn’t do without. Plus, it’s based on the real-life tugboats of the Willis Avenue Bridge, which was relocated by barge from Albany to New York City in 2011. Read this book and open up the fascinating world of tugboats for children ages 1-5. Ready to get pulling? You can find Tugboat, by Michael Garland right here on Amazon.
