Pirates on the Farm by Denette Fretz

Pirates on the Farm by Denette Fretz, illustrated by Gene Barretta

What would you do if a group of Pirates moved in next door? This hilarious and creative book shows how out of place pirates are when they take over a farm. They have NO idea how to plant seeds, take care of animals or even socialize! As you read through this book you get to enjoy watching the pirates learn important skills.

I found this book to be way better than I thought. My son and I laughed and laughed at the pictures and how the pirates did everything wrong. There was not a boring page in the whole book! The lessons were subtle but strong. I appreciated the fact that the pirates went to church as well!

Review from my six year old son Max:

"This book was funny because Pooch was crawling like a dog and every picture had something funny.  The story was great because it was funny and there were Pirate words. I liked that the family started helping the pirates! I like this book and I will read it lots of times!"

***This book was given to us by the publisher in exchange for an open and honest review***

  1. Oh I love children's books. As a teacher and a tutor, finding fun and interesting picture books is a great way to catch the attention of little readers. What reading level would you say this book is at?
