ABOUT THE BOOK
“Who could ever guess that going outside to play on the trampoline could lead to an exciting high seas adventure? That’s exactly what happened to Charlie and Lexie when they went out to play while their mother was cooking supper.
In Hokey Pokey Pirates children learn the importance of family bonding time, and that not all treasure is made of gold.”
4 out of 5
Having a children’s book that originated in the mind of a nine year old is an absolute wonderful idea, and Hokey Pokey Pirates is a cute tale of children, pirates, and imagination that children would love. The main characters, Charlie and Lexie, have an exciting day they never would have expected just from playing outside on their trampoline. Not only do they have a wild day of dancing and adventure, but they also learn a valuable lesson for every young child about the importance of how great the little things in life can be.
The language in Hokey Pokey Pirates is perfect for reading to tots, and for older children as reading that is simple but occasionally throws in some words that they may not know to improve their reading skills. As well, the illustration is great for a children’s book, with fun and colorful images throughout the text to spark kids’ imaginations and help them picture it for themselves. For a short and sweet bedtime story, or young reading book, Hokey Pokey Pirates is a wonderful little story for every imaginative child.
