We had fun reading this book together (my youngest and myself). The pictures are cute and the words are not difficult for a beginning reader. The story is just 'rollicking' as it says in the title. We enjoyed looking at the pictures as much as we enjoyed reading the book.

Well worth the money.
Enjoy.

A cute picture book with the message on getting along. Colorful illustration and easy to understand progression. Six personalities work on agreeing on someplace to set sail for.

"The Six Pirates" is another lively, charming children's book by Lily Lexington; she is rapidly becoming one of my favorite e-book authors. Her stories, written in easy-to-read, smooth, flowing poetry form teach valuable lessons while maintaining a child's interest. Simple, colorful two dimensional illustrations enhance the story.

Each of the six young pirates is different - one is wise, one small, one strong, one serious, one gruff and one funny. None can get along with or agree with the others and as a result, the group is having a difficult time finding the right spot for their new home. It is only when "wise" pirate takes the initiative to find the right location - by waiting until the others are asleep and sailing their ship - that the group comes together and agrees on their new home. In resolving their problem and reaching agreement about a new beach location, the young pirates teach little ones that they will accomplish more and reach their goal more easily through cooperation.

Your little ones will thoroughly enjoy "The Six Pirates" and you will enjoy reading it to them. Lily Lexington creates wonderful books that also teach valuable lessons.

Could've gone without reading this one but as far as stories go, it is ok. My daughter, who is 4, picked this one out and it looked really cute, but it is just ok. The story needs more action. The pictures are kind of lame. But, all in all, not a total waste of time.

Read this book to my child, mind you, before reading it myself (BIG MISTAKE) because we have so many of this author's books already and I truly thought I could "trust" the content. I learned the hard way. Never again....and I do mean, NEVER AGAIN will I do that. My son is 5 and is just starting Kindergarten this year. He's learning all about social skills. This story is about 6 Pirates all with the strangest (IMHO) names....but that is just a personal opinion. Well....more on that point (the pirate's names) later. They are almost constantly arguing, which I truly don't advocate in chosing a book for my child, especially in this age group. I mean....what message are we sending to the children of today-that fighting/arguing is an "acceptable" way to handle conflict?! The "conflict" I speak of is merely the 6 pirates trying to decide which way to go, all wanting something different. Why didn't the author INSTEAD go a different route and take it to the level of we all have different ideas but when we come together and make decisions together, we make "compromises".....BUT...the author chose CONFLICT/FIGHTING/ARGUING....really?! Why? I really want to know why? I totally understand about FREEDOM of speech and totally advocate for it....but I do ALSO firmly believe in when someone chooses to become a children's author, that comes with great responsibility! A child's world is so vivid.....so wide....so believable in what he/she hears and/or reads. So, hence comes the immense resonsibility.....has this author EVER heard the saying..."It takes a village?"
OK.....onto the NAMES of the pirates....I was "alright" with their names with the exception of two of the pirates: one's name was actually "MEAN"....and another's was, "WEAK!" Ok...I was a bit taken aback by the latter of the two. My son wanted to figure out who was who.....so we did so. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED when we figured out who the author called, "WEAK!" Can you believe it was a pirate with a "peg-leg"? So, am I to assume that a Pirate (who by the way all are drawn as children) with a disability is seen as "WEAK"??!! I'm not only appalled...but I"m ANGRY! It was one thing to "teach" through her words in this book that fighting your way through conflicts is REALLY the way to go.....BUT my gosh, to actually come out and call a child (as that is how they are drawn) who has a peg-leg, "WEAK"?! WOW! I just cannot believe some of the stuff ppl call "children's books"....REALLY?!

Lily Lexington's books are a must for anyone with small children in their lives. Keep them around to entertain when the need arises. They are all fun.

The six pirates are appealing both to adults and children. The illustrations each tell a story of their own and kids will enjoy discussing them with you. Each pirate is different and their attitude matches their name.
Always a good thing to have a lesson in a book.

Get this book and read it to your little ones.

My grandson really enjoyed this book. I loved that it rhymed because its not so easy keeping a 4 year old attention he loves pirates. I would recommend this book for children my only complaint is that there are not more free books for like this for children because he loves to read and for me to read to him. Again thanks to the author and the kindle for providing free books that are well written!!!
