Whose Boat Is This Boat?: Comments That Don't Help in the Aftermath of a Hurricane | The Staff of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert
7 posts | 8 read | 3 to read
100% of The Late Shows proceeds from this book go to hurricane relief. Whose Boat Is This Boat? Comments That Dont Help in the Aftermath of a Hurricane is a picture book made entirely of quotations from President Donald Trump in the wake of Hurricane Florence. It is the first childrens book that demonstrates what not to say after a natural disaster. On September 19, 2018, Donald Trump paid a visit to New Bern, North Carolina, one of the towns ravaged by Hurricane Florence. It was there he showed deep concern for a boat that washed ashore. At least you got a nice boat out of the deal, said President Trump to hurricane victims. Have a good time! he told them. The only way his comments would be appropriate is in the context of a childrens bookand now you can experience them that way, thanks to the staff of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Whose Boat Is This Boat? is an excellent teaching tool for readers of all ages who enjoy learning about empathy by process of elimination. Have a good time!

Sigh. I sure miss having a president who was intelligent enough to recommend good literature instead of one who accidentally “wrote” a book based on the stupid things he said/tweeted after a natural disaster. 😖

Dolly 🤭Agreed. One worry is what kids are learning today. 3mo

1) Work & study
2) Other than the fact that I have been very blessed with some wonderful family & friends, I also once won a trip to LA on Friday the 13th.
3) I think this is the only book I've finished this month...I promise once I can stop studying, I will be getting so much more recreational reading done!
4) So many, but I'm going with Mary Shelley.
5) 🍀 🍀 🍀

While at the bookstore, I also read this. Even for a children's book, it's very simple and poorly written, which can't be helped since it's written using actual quotes. I also wish that it was longer, maybe a book devoted to all inappropriate comments by 45 would be satisfying...although that may get to be too long. 😅 Overall, it was fine for a one time read.

AriThomas It's not a children's book, it's actually shelved in the humor section. At least in my store it is 😂 8mo

Okay, okay. So technically this book is not on topic, but do I get extra points for being petty? #tinyhands

The pictures are very illustrative. I have already read this to my son a couple of times.
