For Jeremy, becoming a pirate is fantastic—no rules! Singing loudly, talking with his mouth full, not saying “please” or “thank you” is great—until he discovers that being a pirate has a downside. After a scary storm at sea, he's disappointed to learn that pirates don’t tuck kids in bed, read them books, or give good-night kisses. The central message: Jeremy learns to have a new appreciation for his parents and for rules. This fantastically illustrated (David Shannon) read-aloud--paired with our no-prep text-dependent questions--is a great story for teaching literature standards. Come along on this fun adventure with Braid Beard and Jeremy and have as much fun as the kids! We do all the work so you don’t have to!
