By: Samantha R. Vamos / Illustrated by: Ryan O'Rourke

Set sail and learn the ABCs with a boat for each letter!

Discover twenty-six types of vessels, from the more common — canoe and motorboat — to the unusual — umiak and Q-boat. Just like in Alphabet Trucks and Alphabet Trains, colorful art includes the letters of the alphabet hidden (and not-so-hidden) in supporting roles in the illustrations.
