There’s something special about receiving a book for review from award-winning, children’s author Carole P. Roman. She sends toys along with her books making it extraordinary. It’s not just kids who love toys. Adults also do, and receiving two rubber pirate ducks along with the book Stuck in the Doldrums: A Lesson in Sharing put a smile on my face.
Arrrrrr, Matey, if you’re looking for a book to teach your little pirates about sharing, so they don’t have to walk the plank read them Stuck in the Doldrums: A Lesson in Sharing, a Captain No Beard story, which features his first-mate friends, Hallie, Linus the Lion,, Fribbet the Frog, Mongo the Monkey and Polly the Parrot. When Captain No Beard gets bossy with his crew, they abandon ship, and the Captain must find a way to use teamwork and understanding or else he will be sailing the high seas by himself. Can he do it?
Stuck in the Doldrums: A Lesson in Sharing ,which is all about the art of sharing, the importance of compromise and cooperation in a fun way, which kids will absolutely love and they will find it a classic favorite. However, just don’t be surprised if they start talking pirate with a colorful parrot on their shoulder.
