“See inside Pirate ships”
I first discovered this wonderful book at our local library. My 3 year old son (who had recently watched Sinbad in German on a rainy day on holiday) became obsessed with pirates. We took this and several other books home for four weeks, but the others were not even opened. He never got bored of lifting the flaps and knew where his favourite pictures were. Though I tired of reading the same book repeatedly Jude didn't and we did both learn a lot of interesting things about pirates. Wonderful!
