About the Book
Who would've thought that going outside to jump on the trampoline would lead to an exciting high seas adventure? That's exactly what happened to Charlie and Lexie when they went out to play while their mom was cooking supper.
Hokey Pokey Pirates is a story written by a child for children, using her own bond with her brothers to teach the importance of family bonding time in an imaginative and fun way.
4 out of 5 stars
This is a cute book for kids that would be good to read to them. Considering the author wrote this when she was nine, this is really good. Since this was written by a kid and is for kids, I didn't expect it to be amazingly well written.
My only complaint is the way the pictures are placed in relation to the text. There will be a whole page of text and then two or three pictures that relate to what happened in that text. I think this could have been done better.
Despite that, this is a cute and funny book that kids will enjoy, and it has a moral that parents will like.
DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for writing a review. I was not obligated to give a positive review, and all thoughts are my own.
