Continuing our 'sea-faring sub theme' today,
I have a new adorable Children's book,
from one of our favorite authors!


Captain No Beard and his crew of loyal pirates heave anchor for another adventure, this time in the icy waters of the Arctic. Captain No Beard's steering a course due north, sailing by the light of the North Star. Everyone on the crew wonders what the captain's up to, especially as he gets embarrassed when they ask. When the captain finally admits his plan, the crew discovers he plans to steal the aurora borealis, the beautiful northern lights that brighten the arctic sky. They're all shocked. They may be pirates, but even they know stealing is bad. Besides, how can anyone steal the lights from the sky? 

The Series 

The series presents real-life problems in an imaginary setting and encourages discussion with both parents and educators

A charming, engaging tale about doing what's right, this is the latest installment in Carole P. Roman's award-winning pirate series. Miss Grace adored  the book, and the lovely  Aurora Borealis crayon and map she sent along with it! She adored setting her imaginary travels to see the lights on the map- I think she did pretty great!

This is a wonderful book for early readers, as they can read with you, or by themselves, and it is a fun, engaging book, that will have your child turning pages as quickly as they can, to see if it is even possible to steal the 'Northern lights'! And the solution, to how to share them, is one that your children will adore as well! 

We highly recommend the whole series as a lovely Christmas present!
