Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship
Thank you, LaTonya for the recommendation. My grandchildren will love this one. My grands live hither and yon, and I miss them something fierce. I'm thinking that videoing stories while I read aloud will help bridge the gap.

This children's book was beautifully illustrated with the father, pirate ship, and the high seas. It used the vernacular of pirates with But this little swashbuckler will do anything to avoid going to sleep.

It used the vernacular of pirates with words such as, lad, heave, first mate, weighin', sailin', and ye. A good bedtime story for children and as you will read for adults. It was cute, but there are definitely better "get ready for bed books" out there. This one seems like it'd get the kiddos more riled up for pirate adventure instead of ready to batten down the hatches and sleep. That said, it was still a fun book.
I really liked the illustrations, and the typical "kid won't sleep" antics were all the more interesting for being on a pirate ship. Dec 01, Rebecca Gomez rated it liked it Shelves: The story and pictures are adorable, and the pirate lingo is fun. But the rhyme is a bit of a metric mess. I suggest reading it once aloud to yourself to iron out the meter issues before reading it aloud to kids.
Aug 06, Angie rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was the best children's pirate book we have read so far! It is not spooky at all, it has really cute illustrations but still has a clear pirate theme. The rhythm and rhyme of the story were fantastic even with the pirate vernacular. It was a fun story to read and there were a couple of interactive moments where your child can look for certain things in the pictures to keep them engaged. At the same time it is a great bedtime story with soothing images and words and a clear bedtim My Review: At the same time it is a great bedtime story with soothing images and words and a clear bedtime routine.

May 31, Luisa Knight rated it liked it Shelves: A sweet yarn that depicts the lovable, though lengthy process, of putting little Pirate Ned to bed. I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything in the book, so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't. My children love these little books.
They thoroughly enjoy each and every story, as if they are all unique and individual without any cause for similarity among them. Even though sometimes, they might seem tedious and repetitive to me as a parent, I do enjoy being able to read short-stories to my children that are clean and respective. May 27, Pam Carroll rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is one of my son's very favorites. I wish the author would write another one that we could add to our bedtime routine.
This is a very cute, rhyming bedtime story for young pirate fans. A cute little father-son book. May have to add this one to our collection because of the pirate theme alone! Sep 02, Katelyn Patterson rated it really liked it. So many white dudes! But cute piratey bedtime routine. Reading this one at pirate pj storytime. Nov 14, Emmaline MacBeath rated it it was amazing Shelves: It is bed time for little first mate Ned, but he isn't sleepy.
He thinks of every possible stall tactic from climbing the mast, to begging for a story. Papa pirate caters to Ned's every wish until he is the one to fall asleep while Ned looks on wide awake! I loved the large, clear, and colorful illustrations. There are just enough lovely background details to keep any age interested.

First of all, for some reason, I have become extremely fond of pirate picture books. And this one ranks well on the Hearty Bounty Meter.
The title was the first thing that drew me in. I loved the illustrations, I loved the rich pirate language, I loved the clear love shown between father and son. And I chuckled at the surprise ending.
Long John Silver is a cunning and opportunistic pirate who was quartermaster under the notorious Captain Flint. Long John Silver had a pet parrot called Captain Flint, often seen sitting on his shoulder where she would nibble on seeds. Silver claims to have served in the Royal Navy and lost his leg under "the immortal Hawke ". He was very tall and strong, with a face as big as a ham—plain and pale, but intelligent and smiling. He claims to have been the only man whom Flint ever feared. Like many of Stevenson's characters, there is more than a modicum of duality in the character; ostensibly Silver is a hardworking and likeable seaman, and it is only as the plot unfolds that his villainous nature is gradually revealed.
His relationship with Jim Hawkins , the novel's protagonist and narrator, is interesting, as he serves as a mentor and eventually father-figure to Jim, creating much shock and emotion when it is discovered that he is in charge of the mutiny, and especially when Jim must confront and fight him later on. Although willing to change sides at any time to further his own interests, Silver has compensating virtues: When Silver escapes at the end of the novel, he takes "three or four hundred guineas " of the treasure with him, thus becoming one of only two former members of Captain Flint's crew to get his hands on a portion of the recovered treasure; a separate cache of bar silver is apparently left on the island.
Jim's own ambivalence towards Silver is reflected in the last chapter, when he speculates that the old pirate must have settled down in comfortable retirement: Stevenson's portrayal of Silver has greatly influenced the modern iconography of the pirate. Silver uses the parrot as another means of gaining Jim's trust, by telling the boy all manner of exciting stories about the parrot's buccaneer history. She's sailed with England—the great pirate Cap'n England. She was at the boarding of the Viceroy of the Indies out of Goa, she was, and to look at her you would think she was a baby.
Silver is married to a woman of African descent, whom he trusts to manage his business affairs in his absence and to liquidate his Bristol assets when his actions make it impossible for him to go home. He confides in his fellow pirates, that he and his wife plan to rendezvous after the voyage to Skeleton Island is complete and Flint's treasure is recovered, at which point Silver will retire to a life of luxury. According to Stevenson's letters, the idea for the character of Long John Silver was inspired by his real-life friend William Henley , a writer and editor.
It was the sight of your maimed strength and masterfulness that begot Long John Silver There have been several major stage adaptations made. There are some red flowers down near the stream that produce some fairly sticky pollen and she thinks that if she disguises herself as a red bee people will believe that there is a new species of bee.
At least it will give the bees time to find out if there is a rare or endangered species in the meadow.
