A Lesson In Sharing
A Captain No Beard Story
by Carole P. Roman

OVERVIEW (from Amazon)
When the wind stops blowing, Captain No Beard and his crew, including First Mate Hallie, Linus the Lion, Fribbet the Frog, Mongo the Monkey and Polly the Parrot, are stuck on a desert island. Maroon with nothing to do, they begin to play and enjoy themselves.

However, Captain No Beard has other ideas, bossing his crew around and making playtime cheerless for everyone. Soon, Captain No Beard decides he has had enough and storms off.

When his ship is attacked by a giant squid, he realizes he needs his crew more than ever. Captain No Beard and his crew show young readers that's it's important to cooperate and share your belongings. The crew teaches us that if you want to have friends, then you must be a friend too.

This wonderful children's book has a pirate theme and teaches little ones lessons.  There is much to be learned in this book, not just sharing.  The book throws you for a loop with an unexpected ending.The illustrations are just wonderful.  They are attention getter's for young readers.  They appear to be watercolor. There were illustrations throughout the book, even on the text pages.  A child won't get bored reading or being read to, this book.  The print wasn't so small that a  little one would have to strain to see and sound out the words. It 's refreshing to find children's books that are teaching tools. It puts together teaching, learning and enjoyment altogether.  It makes learning fun. Another thing nice, is that the cover can be wiped down from those little sticky fingers.  Every little child should have these learning books to read or to be read to.  Keep up the marvelous work, Ms. Roman.

I received a complimentary copy of  the book STUCK IN THE DOLDRUMS, A Lesson In Sharing,  A CAPTAIN NO BEARD STORY by Carole P. Roman, for this unbiased review.

I give this book a 5 STARS.

A definite high five.
