In 2000 we spent a week at Emerald Island surrounded by family. Jake and Zac were much smaller and Grandpa Hank is one who loves jokes. As we settled into the house on the beach, the boys were enjoying the sounds of the ocean when their grandpa told them the story of Blackbeard. I don’t remember the details of the story, though I’m sure it was hysterically dramatic. What I do remember is Zac being so intrigued and wanting to find pirates!
Li’l Man takes after his brother.
He loves all things pirate!
He thinks an adventure on the high seas would be awesome and living the pirate’s life something of an adventure.
Thanks to Carole P. Roman’s new book, Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirates Life, Li’l Man has been sailing on a pirate’s adventure.
This book has it all from Pirates: Captain No Beard (aka Alexander), First Mate, Hallie (Alexander’s cousin), and a crew of stuffed animals that come to life, to adventure: brewing storms, choppy sea, and mermaids!
It is so easy for Li’l Man to be part of the action, he loves shouting “Shiver Me Timbers” with the characters and I’ve noticed during his kitchen cleaning duties he’s been chanting, “Swab the Deck!”
The illustration in the book is just as fun with vibrant colors, lovable characters, and a world of imagination.
It’s easy for kiddos to engage their imagination and become part of this fun story from beginning to end.
