Pick of the Week: Port Side Pirates

Port Side Pirates! by Oscar Seaworthy, illustrated by Debbie Harter (Barefoot Books, 2007)

This is a rollicking good time of a picture book! As far as young children are concerned, there's never enough pirate books, right? This one is a fun addition and especially good for the younger set. Join the pirate ship crew as they set sail and search for treasure. There's the typical drama that ensues - man overboard and wild storms at sea...But, aye, it's a very fun time! The best way to share this book is to pair it with the catchy singalong CD that comes with the book. Featured in the endnotes are a visual diagram labeling the different parts of a ship and interesting facts about famous pirates in history.
