Picture Book Pick: Are Pirates Polite?
by Corinne Demas and Artemis Roehrig
Illustrations by David Catrow
Available November 29, 2016
Vibrant illustrations and fun loving, raucous pirates paired with rhyming text makes this book a real keeper. Even though pirates plunder, fight, and are loud, they do share. Pirates use their manners according to this book.
Pirate manners include: knocking before entering a door, showing respect and being a good sport. There are twelve manners in all and they are listed for young readers on the last page.
So much fun! Any child who loves pirates and ships will love this gem of a story.
Highly recommended for all young sea-going lads and lasses. This is a great read to help instill manners and have that discussion about always eating with your mouth closed, saying "excuse me," sharing, and other polite behaviors.
