Designed for use by children's librarians in organizing and conducting a summer reading program for children 5 through 12 years of age, this "log book" contains suggestions for activities related to a seafaring theme together with lists of selected materials relevant to the particular activities. Samples of a press release and several public service announcements are provided as well as a suggested script for a school visit by the librarian prior to the beginning of the program. Each journey (section) has suggested stories, booktalks, poetry, music, crafts, games, community resources, and assorted other ideas. The journeys include: (1) Down to the Sea in Ships (boating skills and seamanship; barques, brigs, and galleons; and adventures on the high seas); (2) Jolly Rogers (pirates); (3) Blow Ye Winds (storms at sea and lighthouses); (4) Beneath the Sea: Underwater Treasures (fish and other sea creatures, including mermaids and mermen); (5) Land Ho! (visits to islands and their inhabitants); and (6) A Booty of Buried Treasure. A final section, Epilogue, contains a maze/puzzle ("Amazing Weather") and a script for a puppet show based on "The Ghost in the Lagoon" by Natalie Savage Carlson. A master bibliography brings together all of the materials cited in the manual, including books, records and cassettes, periodicals, and an annotated listing of state library films. Answer sheets for games and an index by types of activity conclude the manual. (BBM)
