Pirates Don't Change Diapers by Melinda Long, David Shannon

When the pirate crew turns up at Jeremy Jacob's house and accidentally wakes his baby sister, that wee scallywag howls louder than a storm on the high seas. Sure, there's buried treasure to be found, but nobody's digging up anything until Bonney Anne quits her caterwauling. So, quicker than you can say "scurvy dog," Braid Beard and his swashbuckling pirates become . . . babysitters? Blimey!
This hilarious companion to How I Became a Pirate reveals that minding the nursery can be even more terrifying than walking the plank--especially if you're a pirate.

This is a book about a boy who wants to buy his mom a birthday present, but gets stuck babysitting. however he is not alone. His friends (pirates) come to help him! A great story aobut trying to find treasure and babysit at the same time.As a student this book was amazing!!! The illustrations were vintage D. Shannon! The story made me laugh through and through!!! Highly recommendedAs a teacher this is a great book to read aloud!! My students will love the story and the illustrations! A lesson that i can use this with would include reading this and then having my students write a pirate story of their own.

This is a follow up book to How I Became a Pirate and is equally charming, fun, and well...very pirate-y. With easy to read text, lots of pirate talk, and detailed yet outrageously funny illustrations this book is a sure fire charmer! In Pirates Don't Change Diapers we rejoin Jeremy Jacob who is trying to figure out what to get his mother for her birthday with his 27 cents when there is a sudden knock at the door. With his mother gone out for milk and his father napping (along with his baby sister Bonney Anne) he's surprised, but delighted to see none other than Braid Beard and His Crew. They need to replace their figurehead, so naturally they need Jeremy's help in digging up their treasure (buried in the first book). Unfortunately all their pirate antics (mostly yelling out pirate-y things like TREASURE) wake Jeremy's baby sister. With young Bonney Anne awake and bawling her brains out, the pirates must help young Jeremy placate her before he can help them find their treasure. Naturally, pirates are not natural babysitters (NO SITTING ON BABIES, they declare), but sitters they become none-the-less. The read is worth it alone for the pictures of pirates trying to change diapers, the wee Bonney Anne's pirate kerchief improvised diaper, the strained spinach, and the cat...that poor cat (check out the diaper scene picture closely, there is a lot to enjoy there)! In the end, readers will be eager to discover is the pirates ever get Bonney Anne to sleep (ROCK ON) and find their treasure...and will Jeremy ever figure out what to get his mom for her birthday. Totally fun, totally charming...your young readers will love this story to pieces (of pirate gold)! Recommend for ages 4-8...I think it would work best as a read aloud, but also believe that it would make fine reading material for emerging readers. Either way, it's sure to be a hit! I give it five stars.

Forget about Johnny Depp; this book trumps every pirate movie made!! A very funny adventrue that every kid will love. The story and the pictures a fun. A great adventrue for any boy or girl who has had a younger sibling. Even adults will be reading it when the kids are asleep. I just wish there was a third one. :(

Prepare to get used to this one, kids love it! My 3yr old granddaughter and her 7yr old brother never tire of this one. Not really any learning lessons here but the illustrations are really fun. Kids will want to point out the scenes as they come alive while reading or listening. This book is well worth it if you are looking for something cute and entertaining.
