Book Review and Giveaway: Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate's Life by Carole P. Roman

Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate's Life by Carole P. Roman is a fun picturebook.  Captain No Beard and his pirate ship The Flying Dragon set sail for a voyage of the imagination with his fearless crew of four: First Mate Hallie, Mongo the Monkey, Linus the loudmouthed lion, and Fribbit the floppy frog. Normally a young boy named Alexander, his cousin Hallie, and three stuffed animals, once they board his bed their world is transformed into a magical vessel, sailing the seven seas on dangerous and exciting adventures!

Captain No Beard is the first book in a series of picturebooks about Alexander, Hallie, and their stuffed animal crew using their imagination to explore the seven seas. They explore pirate terms, use team work, and entertain young readers. The illustrations are colorful and fun, exploring the use of imagination.

The second book, Pepper Parrot's Problem with Patience continues the narrative about friendship, teamwork, and how everyone is a little different. In this book Pepper is a new member to the crew and is having trouble keeping up with everyone else. It all comes down to different learning styles and shows young readers that no only is it okay to learn or think differently from others, but that helping each other is much better than laughing, teasing, or getting angry.
