Pirates on the Farm
TITLE: Pirates on the Farm
AUTHOR: Denette Fretz
ILLUSTRATOR: Gene Barretta
What should the family do when a group of pirates decides to move in next door? Each family member has a different reaction to these new neighbors who know nothing about farming and don't act socially appropriate. Many in the community reject them. Will the new neighbors ever be accepted?
This is a great book to explore the differences between people and what we can do to be friendly to others, even those who act a little differently than we do. I think there is a good lesson here and young children will enjoy the pirate characters. I liked that various pirate vocabulary words were listed and defined in the back of the book.
I received this book from the publisher for my honest review.
