We're All in the Same Boat
We’re all in the same boat, both literally and metaphorically, in this playful look at how we can work together for the common good. The animals in this boat discover that working together gets them much further and is more fun than trying to go their separate ways. Barney Saltzberg (Enough Is Enough) brings his trademark humor to a group of animals who learn they’ll sink or swim together. Teamwork matters when we’re all in the same boat!

“Saltzberg offers a comedic take on a fable-like situation: a goat, a pig, a cat, and a dog set off in a rowboat together . . . Sequential ink-lined art against simple washes features expressive animals, lending a lighthearted feel to this teamwork-affirming picture book.”—Publisher’s Weekly
“The cartoon animals are full of personality, displaying all their emotions up front, with a goofiness that will get lots of laughs from young readers . . . Saltzberg’s light touch gets an important message across with great, good humor.”—Kirkus Reviews
