There is just something about a tale of pirates that intrigues children and excites them to the adventure. They love pirate-speak such as “Shiver me timbers,” “Aye Captain….a big blow,” “Aye, me hearties.”
In Captain No Beard young readers encounter purpose and a lesson in how hard work and perseverance or determination can help them.
Captain No Beard is a hearty “lad” capable of being a captain though he finds that it is definitely hard work. Valuable lessons in hard work, friendship, and determination are taught via this colorful story.
Colorfully illustrated, this “imaginary tale of a pirate’s life” will surely capture the interest of the young child and young reader just as surely as though they had been captured by Captain No Beard, the pirate. (rev. VHG)
