Books for Young Pirates
As a youngster I went to sea aboard a pirate ship. We sailed far and wide, encountering fierce gales and storms. A man went overboard, and we discovered a shipwreck brimming with treasure. This is the essence of the sea chantey told through words, pictures, and music in this piratical tale. Thereís also a two-page spread detailing the parts of a pirateís galleon, as well as information on different types of ships, pirates around the world, and some famous pirates in history. The last page includes the musical score for ďPort Side Pirates.Ē
This is not a tale to be read silently or right before bed. In my first reading, I wasnít impressed because thatís exactly what I did. Then I popped in the CD and what a difference! Port Side Pirates! is meant to be sung, and as I listened to the music, read the words, and examined the colorful pictures, the book came alive. I felt the wind blow and heard the thunder crash. I also found myself singing along with Mark Collins and his pirate mates as I turned each page. I didnít want the adventure to end. Port Side Pirates! will delight and entertain young pirates for hours. Itís a treasure that only reveals itself once the chest is opened.
