I'm pleased to report that after our trip to Disney World this summer (her first), my daughter can now sometimes be found walking around the house singing "Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!".
"You know that you are in good hands with this book on the very first page:
"Burnt Beard the Pirate was the scourge of the seven seas, the four oceans, and several lakes."
Rich vocabulary and deadpan humor. What more could the parents of a six year old want in a picture book?"
It's the perfect book for today, and I plan to read it to my daughter at bedtime.
Wishing you a treasure-filled Talk Like a Pirate Day. Arggh!
