Sail Away With Me by Jane Collins-Philippe

Description

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.
