Daylight is fading, so it's time for boats of all kinds to wrap up their work and navigate back to harbor. As a tugboat and its crew of father and child steer toward home, it's a race to get there before the storm does! Harbor Bound traces their energetic journey, finally culminating with a gentle lullaby as they reach the shore.
This picture book is a natural choice for children who love vehicle stories, and its steady, lilting rhythm makes it perfect for bedtime reading.
