How Boats Work

9:51 AM  Mar 19th, 2015

A book by Mary McCulley Umstot ’79.

Despite its classification as a children’s book, Mary McCulley Umstot ’79 describes it as “a nautical book for all ages.” Watercolor illustrations and rhyming lines take readers on a tour aboard Teka III, with Arnold the Anchor as their guide. Umstot found inspiration in her 33 years of boating experience and wanted to teach readers not only what boats are, but what they do. “Children could be around boats all the time, but hopefully this will create a greater appreciation for those
experiences.”
