Boating Fun – Adventure on the Water, was written in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is a storybook/coloring book (targeted to children in Grades K-3) with pictures that are suitable for making overhead transparencies.

A guide to the safe boating messages in the book, as well as a list of activities (with short explanations), can be found on Pages 1-2. The story contains all the safe boating messages and, in addition, key messages for the pictures are separately listed on each page where the related picture is found. The book is designed to be used in traditional, instructor-led classes as well as a stand-alone study by a single user.
