This great meme is hosted by Jenny Matlock. Click here to visit the website and join in the fun! I am going to use Alphabet Thursday to show off some of my favourite children's picture books each week! I love using picture books in my teaching and do have a particular fondness for vintage picture books.
Here is this weeks book by Pamela Allen who is one of my favourite children's authors! It is called I Wish I Had a Pirate Suit, recommended for children aged between 5-9 years. My copy is a new edition - I would love to find an old hardcover edition at the second hand bookshop one day though!!
Were you the youngest child who always had to be the crew or the maid or the monster, but never the pirate or the Queen/King or the Hero???? Were you the one who got all the second hand costumes, clothes, shoes etc?? The poor little brother in this book was! This is a great book to teach about playing nicely and letting friends or siblings have a turn sometimes :)
Here is the synopsis for I Wish I Had a Pirate Suit taken from Fishpond.com: Peter has a pirate suit and all the power to go with it, while his younger brother has to serve as the crew on their imaginary pirate ship.
