For a light-hearted primer on boating safety for children:
"Adrift" by Colleen Politano & Joan Neudecker ISBN 0-919931-08-1
and from a couple of youngsters that have 'been there and done that'
'Kids for Sail' by Pamela and Sam Bendall ISBN 0-920501-49-4
Also, Royce's Sailing Illustrated is a good primer for anyone, but quite kid friendly too (I have a very old copy, this ISBN may not be current) ISBN 0-930030-14-1
Not Sailing, per se, but a good kid's read is "Riverboat Adventures" from Brimax ISBN 0-86112-179-1
These may well be out of print.. but there's Ebay and craigslists....
Also, beautifully illustrated and just plain fun:
"How I became a Pirate" and "Pirates don't change diapers" by Melinda Long and David Shannon
1984 Fast/Nicholson 345 "FastForward"
".. there is much you could do at sea with common sense.. and very little you could do without it.."
Capt G E Ericson (from "The Cruel Sea" by Nicholas Monsarrat)
