Pirates on the Farm

Pirates on the Farm By: Denette Fretz Illustrated By: Gene Barretta

The Sanders family were never very adventurous. Than one day 5 bad-mannered pirates move into their small town to the farm across the street. From their interesting food choices and their behavior  the Sanders family are in for a new adventure. Not quite sure how to deal with the pirates Mrs. Sanders begins to save money to move away from the pirates, however, her husband has something else in mind and shows the pirates how to become farmers and invites them to church and dinner.

Pirates are never expected to be found on a farm but this cute story teaches the importance of reaching out to your neighbors and not judging them on how they appear. The things they do not know may simply mean that no one has ever shown them. Pirates on the Farm is a great children’s story that shows how much simple acts of kindness can go a long way with your neighbors and in the end you may end up learning something yourself.

This book is filled with beautiful, descriptive illustrations that will make you laugh at the antics of the pirates but will also teach you and your children a valuable lesson about loving your neighbors.

I received this book complimentary from the publisher through the Booksneeze program in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and reviews are my own.
