This short and simple book explains all the things a little tugboat can do. The job of a tugboat is to pull certain things from one place to another. Sometimes the things tugboats pull are huge cruise ships. I simply learned from reading this book that even though a tugboat is really small, it's engine is huge. It's a very important boat that has a big job to do everyday. The pictures in this book are very colorful and pretty and it shows you what exactly a tugboat does on a daily basis. I highly recommend it to young children who are interested in it. It's not a hard read at all. It has about 2 sentences on each page. Great book. ( )
