Away Go the Boats is a bath time adventure that teaches young children to use their imagination to go places they wouldn’t typically be able to go. The pictures are bright and colorful and bring a level of cheerfulness that is pleasant to look at. When reading I did have two concerns. The first concerns was that I, like other reviewers, did find the child in the pictures to be a little old. The next concern was that I also found the text the mother says to the child to be a bit awkward, since it is not how someone typically will talk to their child. After reading, I lean toward believing that this might be more suited toward the younger side of the picture-book age range rather the older.
