Book Review: Half-Pint Pete the Pirate

21 May

This is the second pirate picture book I have read this week.  What a great way to introduce fractions to young children and begin to explain the concept of one half.  Half-Pint Pete has a patch hiding half of his eyes and half his legs made out of pegs.  But what happens when he holds half of a treasure map and meets Half-Baked Belle who holds the other half?  Will Half-Pint Pete be able to share half of his treasure?  Written in rhyming verses this book, with colorful illustrations will delight all of those young pirates out there.  Get ready to read this one aloud in your best pirate voice.
