Book Review: "Pirates on the Farm" by Denette Fretz

I was given a free hardcover copy of "Pirates on the Farm" from Zondervans to review through their ZblogSquad program.

In "Pirates on the Farm", five pirates sell their boat to buy a farm.  They don't know what they are doing and make many blunders, causing the townsfold to want to run them out of town.  Will the pirates find someone to help them and teach them what they need to know?

I thought that "Pirates on the Farm" was a cute and fun story.  It is a modern day parable to help kids learn about loving their neighbor.  The illustrations are colorful and engaging for children.  There is a list of "Seadog Definitions" in the back of the book as well as a "Parent's Letter"  that gives ideas for discussion with your child about the book.

The book is geared toward children ages 4-8 and I would recommend it for that group.
