Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review You might think children of 6+ wouldn't be very interested in books about history - but this is a series that they definitely will want to read! Pirates are a popular topic in schools, and one that really engages children's attention. Now they can learn all about pirates, from famous characters to scurvy and hygiene - everything they need to know is here. Each topic covers two pages, with clear labeling down the page edges to make the book easy to navigate. Each spread includes age-appropriate levels of information accompanied by limited colour palette drawings that are vivid and full of detail - with plenty of interjections from the pirates themselves! The vivid artwork and infographics give the book a fresh appeal that children won't be able to resist. * Parents in Touch *
