Teagan Tugboat learns to appreciate her home with the help of her friend, Izzy Icebreaker.

Harbor Happiness Excerpt:

It was early morning and the sun was just rising over the waters of Ahway Island Bay, making the water look as shiny as diamonds. Teagan Tugboat sat at her dock, patiently floating in the water. She was eager to get the day started.


Today, Teagan was going to see her good friend, Izzy Icebreaker! Today was a day off for both of them. They didn’t need to do any of their usual work, so they could just spend the day together and play! They were going to do all kinds of fun things: race in the river, talk about the beautiful places they’ve been, and even visit some of their other friends, like Manny Motorboat.


Then Izzy was going to stay overnight in the empty dock next to Teagan’s dock. Teagan had been waiting for this day for a long time, so she had planned everything out. All she had to do was wait for Izzy and the day could begin!
