Here is a veritable treasure chest of fun for kids. When they open this miniature pirate's chest, they'll discover:
An Eye Patch * An Earring * Pirate's Coins * Rope for Nautical Knot-Tying * A Jolly Roger Pirate Flag * Pirate Posters * A Pirate's Bandana * A Pirate's Journal
Also, a paperback book and sets of cards teach kids how to tie sailor's knots, recognize different types of sailing ships, and follow a pirates' treasure map. Hidden in the chest's secret compartment is a hoard of replica coins, an eye patch, a pirate's flag, and ship's rope. As kids look further into the chest they will find a hardcover Pirate's Journal -a thrilling sea story that begins at a Caribbean port in the year 1715 and tells of a search for buried treasure. Sue Unstead, the story's author, has many children's books of history and nonfiction to her credit. The Little Box of Pirate Treasures is a terrific child's pastime, a source of fun on rainy days, and a kit guaranteed to spark youthful imaginations while providing hours of pleasure.
