CaptainNoBeardWhat do you get when you take 19 eye patches and bandannas, 2 pirate hats, a dragon,  a parrot, a lion, a monkey and a frog to a classroom full of Kindergarteners?

You get the makings for a sea worthy fun time aboard the “Flying Dragon”!

Last week I had the opportunity to read “Captain No Beard An Imaginary Tale of a Pirates Life” by Carole P Roman to my daughters Kindergarten class.  The kids sat in awe aboard our pretend pirate ship as I told the story of Captain No Beard and his crew.

Captain No Beard and his trusty crew set sail aboard their mighty ship, the “Flying Dragon”.  When a rumbling storm rolls in the can the Captain keep his crew safe?  What will happen when they hear a mysterious voice from the bottom of the sea? Will Captain No Beard and his crew find the treasure from the sea?

CaptainNoBeard1This was a fantastically fun book to read.  It captured the children’s imagination and mine! It was impossible not to feel the fun and excitement in the book.  The illustrations are creative and fun. The font is whimsical and adds to the whole feel of the book, while still being easily read. I knew as soon as I read it that I had to read it to the class.  They loved it as much as I did.

As I read it aloud the kids began to read along with me.  “Shiver me timbers!” they would yell right along with me.  They would sigh and say with me, “Being a captain is hard work.”  Suited for both boys and girls, this book was engaging and kept a group of 5 and 6 year old captivated the entire time it was read.  When I finished the kids wanted to read more, but sadly it was the end of the school day and we had to go home.

I wish I could have taken photos of our pretend ship and my crew, but I was unable to because of “the rules”, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that I had the best crew ever!

“Captain No Beard An Imaginary Tale of a Pirates Life” is a story that will take you on an imaginary fantastical adventure of a lifetime!
