Books for kids

Is the Complete Sailor accessible for a 10 year old with a few lessons already under his belt?

Any other recommendations?

Storybooks for even younger kids?

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

Ron

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)

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
