Children's Book Review~ Pepper Parrot's Problem with Patience
My son, grandson, and I have had the pleasure of reviewing another delightful book by author Carole P. Roman-Pepper Parrot's Problem with Patience-A Captain No Beard Story. We've previously read a few of the Captain No Beard stories, and both kids just love them.
In Pepper Parrot's Problem with Patience, Captain No Beard and his trusty crew welcome a new crew member-a parrot named Pepper! As they do their drills on deck, they quickly realize that Pepper Parrot doesn't know her right from her left. The crew helps her learn, and together they successfully do their drills.
In this story there is a theme of teamwork and helping one another, along with a subtle teaching tool for Dyslexia. My son has Dyslexia, and I could see this story being helpful for any child, especially those with a learning disability.
The Captain No Beard series has quickly become a favorite at my house. The illustrations are bright and fun, and the stories are funny and engaging, with helpful character building themes. Author Carole P. Roman is a talented author-you can learn more about her at www.caroleproman.com, and on Facebook. Pepper Parrot's Problem with Patience is available at Amazon.
