So September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day (how the heck do you officially make something like that international -- I want to hear a Russian talk like a pirate . . . ) but I couldn't wait until then to share a cute book.
Plus, little kids love pirates so it may be pirate day in your house many times before September.
Sarah McConnell's book is one I randomly pulled off the shelf on library day and it is really cute. How could it not be with a grandmother named "Long Joan Silver"? The Silver's are a family who have left piracy behind, until the daughter finds gold and all those pirate-y instincts are awakened!! And the main character is a girl. Which for my girls, is kind've a plus. The illustrations are fun and it's particularly fun to read if you really can talk like a pirate! And for one person out there . . . I know you're celebrating "P" week this week so if pirates are on your list . . . enjoy!
