Review of Children's Book Heroes of the Surf
This book is a great way to learn about the beginnings of the Coast Guard. Told from the viewpoint of a little boy on a ship you can’t help but be drawn into the story. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thought the illustrations, although a bit muted in color, were well drawn and really helped you see the story being told. I think any young boy would enjoy reading this and any child who likes boats, rescues or the Coast Guard.
