How to Be a Pirate is everything a child's book should be...entertaining, easy to read, fun to look at and well done. Ms. Fliess knows rhyme and writes it perfectly. The colorful pictures are detailed and make for fun conversation. I highly recommend this one for both boys and girls!

Gave this book to my partner for his first grader's library. They love it! It's the most popular book. They all want to read it - both boys and girls.

My almost 2 year old is on a pirate kick. This book is very toddler friendly. I like the catchy rhyming verse too.

Cute rhymes, nice rebellious feel, and some gender and racial diversity too (not a lot, but more than you usually see in this kind of book).

Its a fine read.However, it was over my preschoolers heads a lot of the wording. Description should be updated so that teachers can get the grasp of the story-line to apply age appropriate text to students.
