Re: Does Anyone Know Any Good Children's Sailing Books ?

Donna Lange has written a couple of children's books about sailing and ocean preservation. I haven't read them but they sound wonderful and the illustrations are very cute.

Re: Does Anyone Know Any Good Children's Sailing Books ?

My old high school teacher and his wife are cruisers (well, semi-retired cruisers) and she has written several children's books about their adventures up and down the ICW.

Toots, A Seafaring Dog Tale

Cumberland Island A to Z, A Scrapbook Journal

The Dismal Swamp State Park A to Z, A Scrapbook Journal

Freddie Frog's Adventure

Re: Does Anyone Know Any Good Children's Sailing Books ?

I's not out yet, we're waiting for final publishing copy, but pretty soon you can read, "Max, The Cruising Cat".

It's a 100% true story about our Snowshoe Siamese and his many adventures becoming a sailor in Mexico.

Re: Does Anyone Know Any Good Children's Sailing Books ?

Here's the cover of the book written by my wife Janet.
It's a true story of Max, a Snowshoe Siamese who we adopted at the age of two from a Gringo living in La Paz Mexico.

Max was used to chasing lizards in his fenced back yard, but all of a sudden he was living on a boat !
He experienced all the cruising lifestyle. He loved sailing, eating lobster, fish and quickly became family to Janet and me.

The first printing of the book is in the mail to us as I write this.

We'll check into getting it through Amazon etc., but at first only be available from us and local stores or by mail order. 59 pages, lots of color photos, good reading for all ages, but aimed at grade school kids.

PM me if you want a copy.

Re: Does Anyone Know Any Good Children's Sailing Books ?

Hi,

I might be quite late to reply to this post!

However, as there is very little “cruising literature” for children I wrote a book myself! Such a book could interest those dreaming about sailing off with their family and/or introduce the idea to their kids, but not only. It is also a story about traveling and living the dream. I really wanted to share the amazing experiences I had with my family while cruising and encourage kids to have (big) dreams that they can realise one day.


"Merlin's Voyage" is now available on Amazon (paperback or kindle in English and in French): [


Regards,

Emmanuelle
