My son just turned 11 months old and we found this book at the library. I picked the book because it looked so cute and simple with good illustrations. Thankfully my son likes this book, too! The pictures are very bright and bold with a little green parrot to find on every page (probably not intended this way, but it's fun to find). Each page has something simple like "All hands on deck!" or "Hoise the sails!" You simply can't resist reading this book without a pirate accent. Now I'm online buying this book!
