Action-filled and moral-packed story that brings to life the imagination of adventurous children. Pirates are on the high seas, with a captain who thinks he knows best and shipmates who know better. Captain No Beard is head of this band of pirates and each has their own job to accomplish. They’re heading north to Dew Rite Volcano, or is it west?
Being a Captain is Hard Work is a children’s book written by Carole P. Roman and illustrated by Bonnie Lemaire. The images of each colorful page depict the emotions and concerns of each character. It is so easy to place yourself, as the reader, onto this pirate ship with these semi-quarrelsome bunch.
I read Being a Captain is Hard Work with my now 7-year old son. He’d not care to read it at first but quickly got sucked into the storyline. I think it was to Captain who didn’t want to listen to his shipmates that did the trick. Or maybe it was when the characters in this book started discussing the types of clouds that they saw to determine the weather. Whichever it was, he did not foresee the ending and neither did I!
A complimentary copy of Being a Captain is Hard Work by Carole P. Roman was sent to me for an honest review. Not only did my son and I thoroughly enjoy this book, we love the Cloud Key at the very end so we can study the clouds we see every day! As the cumulus clouds float quietly over me, I hope you and your child will enjoy this book as much as we have!
