“Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience” by Carole P. Roman is a delightful book about learning and overcoming difficulties in life. Out of all of Roman’s pirate books, I have to say that this one is my favorite. Besides being full of great artistic pictures, this book really hits home on handing emotions. Pepper the Parrot doesn’t know his left from right. This subsequently gets him embarrassed in public. Then, he gets frustrated, angry, and even cries. Now, adults may know their left from their right, but we can all identify with not knowing something and getting embarrassed / upset over it. The book also emphasizes kindness in teaching others, along with some humor thrown in for good measure. There is even a tip included for little ones to remember their left from their right. All in all, this is a great book.
Pepper Parrot's temper is understandable! I still have difficulty with my lefts and rights! But through the help of her friend, Pepper finds ways to help her cope with her temper and with her confusions. This is a delightful addition to the Captain No Beard book series. The playful illustrations and clever writing makes it a favorite for kids and adults alike!
We received this book to give an honest review. Love pirates? Then this is a book that you will enjoy. This is our first pirate book by this author. And we love Captain No Beard already. We meet Pepper who is new to the crew and unfortunately get a bit upset when she doesn't know left to right. Not only does Pepper get taught this, we learned as well. Which K knows his left to right but sometimes you need a refresher. The illustrations were colorful, the only thing I would suggest is the monkey look more like a monkey. K said it looked like a man and in one picture he didn't think he looked very nice. I love how Captain No Beard is a normal kid with an imagination. When we got to the end I realized oh this little boy is using his imagination to be a pirate, great way to get kiddos to use their imagination. This is a perfect pirate read for the ages 3 or 4 on up. K is 7 and loves it.
Captain No Beard introduces Pepper the Parrot to the shipmates. Pepper is sad because she can not tell left from right. I love the camaraderie of the shipmates that are helping Pepper learn. Along for with teaching left from right there is also the lesson of not feeling sorry for yourself but to keep trying. I love the watercolor images, the characters, and the message. Could find nothing wrong with. Captain No Beard is the type of series that I could see as a cartoon on early weekday mornings or Saturday mornings.
