Not realistic about safety.

I bought this book for my going-on-3-yr-old grandchildren because my family lives in Maine in a lobster-fishing community but they live in a city and only make brief visits. I bought it for the illustrations most of all. I am unhappy that almost none of the children in the story are wearing life jackets in the boats or on the docks. The adult sons alone in small boats are not either. Everyone knows that the water is too cold to save yourself without one. I plan to use a colored pencil or marker to remedy that before I introduce the children to the book this summer. Otherwise I love the book and the intrepid grandma.
