Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience by Carole P. Roman

We love the Captain No Beard series by Carol P. Roman. These books are fun reads with exciting illustrations that my children pull of the shelf to read on their own. As a mom, I love that these books have a subtle life lesson. Our favorite Captain sails again in Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience: A Captain No Beard Story.
Pepper Parrot's Problem with Patience A Captain No Beard Story
In Roman’s new book Captain No Beard’s crew takes on dyslexia as well as handling emotional situations correctly. It’s lessons are managing stressful circumstances to gain better results through compassion and teamwork. This book couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Our life has been rather unstable these past few months and I’ve seen stress strike my children.

As they read about Captain No Beard and his animal crew of The Flying Dragon pirate ship, they welcomed a new crew member. My children have each been new students in a new school this year. As the book goes on Pepper Parrot becomes frustrated while attempting the drills with the others. Not knowing her right from her left, Pepper Parrot grows anxious and throws a temper tantrum when she can’t keep up. The crew pulls together and works patiently to help their friend.

This book is a great part of the series and we have enjoyed reading it together and on our own.
