Little Tug

Little Tug might not be the tallest, fastest or biggest boat in the harbor, but he is certainly the most helpful.  He pulls, pushes and guides other boats and ships to safety.  At the end of his busy, helpful day, Little Tug runs out of steam and so the boats he has been helping return the favor by tucking him in for the night.  The tall sail boat gives Little Tug a sail for a blanket, the fast motor boat “hums him a lullaby” and the big ocean liner give him a “great big hug.”

This book is just right for toddlers.  The story is simply told and easy to follow and the illustrations are clean and engaging.  Your own little helper will be able to see a bit of himself or herself in Little Tug, and the story has a cozy all’s-right-with-the-world feel.

Stephen Savage also wrote and illustrated the picture book Where’s Walrus?  and illustrated the picture book  Polar Bear Nights.  Check them all out at your library!
