Looking for a rhyming read-aloud book that your pre-schooler will love? Check out Pirates Love Underpants. I’ve had a lot of luck reading books about underpants to pre-schoolers, so I have no doubt that this one will be a hit! Join these pirates as they make their way through Big Knickers Bay, Three Pants Ridge, and the Long-John Bridge to search for the Pants of Gold.
And, if you enjoy this tale, you’ll have to check out Aliens in Underpants Save the World by the same duo.
Pirates Love Underpants by Claire Freedman, illus. by Ben Cort; Simon & Schuster; 15.99; Ages 3-6
I Love My Pirate Papa, by Laura Leuck, Ages 3-7
This week is pirate week here at Hooray for Books! With our own gang of local pirates invading the ship each day during pirate camp (real training on how to be a true pirate :), I decided a pirate-inspired Father’s Day book could not be more appropriate!
I Love My Pirate Papa tells the tale of a young lad and his pirate dad who love to spend their days sailing the high seas together. Papa likes to teach his son the ropes by showing him how to climb the stays, shimmy up the mast, and dig for buried treasure. The inseparable pair do everything pirates normally do, but pirate papa is quick to remind his little buccaneer that while pirateering is his job and his plunders are special, the people in his life are what he treasures most! In mind of Father’s Day, this book makes a great gift for dads to read aloud with their own little one and cannot be matched for its sweet ending, creative style, and bright illustrations.
I Love My Pirate Papa, Laura Leuck, Harcourt Inc., $ 16.00
