Following Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience comes Stuck in the Doldrums, part of the Captain No Beard children’s book series. There’s always an adventure in these books by Carole P. Roman!
In Stuck in the Doldrums: A Lesson in Sharing, Captain No Beard and his crew are at it again, but when the wind stops blowing the pirate ship, The Flying Dragon, gets stranded on a desert island! Together with his crew, Captain No Beard has to use teamwork and understanding to get to the problem at hand. When Captain No Beard gets bossy and makes even play time miserable for everyone, he finds himself alone and in big trouble.
This was a book my children recognized themselves in. They each could relate a story about when they were playing and and not listen to their friends and come to a compromise they took the route of bossy pants leaving them playing alone and without fun.
This story is full of adventure and silliness and while it’s lighthearted, it teaches the importance of compromise and cooperation.
