Argh! Ahoy, Mateys! Be ye ready for adventure?
Well, me hardies, climb aboard and give me an ear, for I’ve a tale to tell…
A tale to tell about a pirate book that is!
Pirates seem to be a favorite among many kids — mine included! We have celebrated Pirate Day with plenty of pirate adventures, and have read
a few a bunch of pirate books over the years.
“Talk like a Pirate Day” is fast approaching, and what better way to celebrate pirates than with a treasure hunt?
This week we had a little treasure hunt of our own before bedtime.
A fun new pirate book and super cute stuffed animal — perfect for bedtime!

Greenbeard the Pirate Pig, by Andrea Torrey Balsara, is fun book about a guinea pig named Greenbeard who starts off as a farmer and seeks adventure as a pirate. Along the way he meets Snug Rumkin, a rat, who tries to teach him the proper ways of being a pirate.
My kids love the fact that Greenbeard chooses to carry a carrot for a sword; after all, he says, “If the sword were sharp, someone could get hurt!”
Part of the book includes a pirate song that Greenbeard makes up to sing. I have to say it’s pretty catchy; my daughter was singing it to herself when she flipped through the pages of the book before she crawled into bed.
