Have you ever wanted to take an adventure on the high seas and experience a Pirate’s life? Well, now you can! As you read the children’s book Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate’s Life by Carole P. Roman, you experience a thrilling day in the life of Captain No Beard and his trusty crew. The crew is said to be his “hearty bunch of mates” consisting of fun loving Captain No Beard (aka Alexander), First Mate (and cousin) Hallie, and an assortment of stuffed animal friends brought to life.
The story takes you through rocky waters, brewing storms and a meeting with enchanted mermaids. As Captain No Beard and his trusty First Mate learn to overcome the obstacles that come their way, Captain No Beard often comments that “Being a captain is hard work”.
My kids loved shouting “Shiver Me Timbers” and “Swab the Deck” along with the crew. The story of Captain No Beard and his crew is exciting, engaging and lots of fun! The bold, colorful pictures enhance the experience of the pirate adventure that Roman takes you on from the moment you begin reading until the very end of the story.
