Gift Ideas: Captain No Beard An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate’s Life Book

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carole Roman for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

The one thing I never regretted buying my kids was books. The plastic toys and electronics all became garbage in record time, but a good book lasts forever. I generally bought them hardcover books and those books were passed on to other children when mine outgrew them. But I tucked away a few special ones to regift to them when they have children of their own.

Holiday Gift Ideas for Kids

I still buy children’s books as gifts for nieces and nephews. I look for great illustrations, a wonderful story, and a storyline that leads to conversations. I’ve just picked up such a book, granted this time it’s in Kindle form, my how the times have changed! The book is “Captain No Beard An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate’s Life” by Carole P. Roman.

This new book is filled with fun characters taking part in and adventure that includes pirates and mermaids and a little bit of excitement. Geared for kids ages 3-8, it’s a fun little read that will give you and your child lots of opportunity to discuss imagination, pretend play, and make-believe.

I love the cheerful and fun illustrations which are filled with fabulous details. These pages are balanced out by text-only pages which are a great way to help kids with recognizing letters and words. The text-only pages also build up the story and create anticipation for the next page.
