KIRKUS REVIEW

 A small boy recounts his three-day voyage on a sailboat with an aunt and uncle, going to join the rest of his family for a beach vacation. Though no place is mentioned, the location seems to be Maryland's Chesapeake region. Despite the obligatory storm, sights and events are realistic rather than adventurous. Krupinski's serene, delectably colored illustrations are just the right match for the text's tone of quiet enjoyment. An effective evocation of a happy experience. (Picture book. 3-8)
