Sanders, Nancy I. A Pirate’s Mother Goose, pictures by Colin Jack. PICTURE BOOK. Albert Whitman, 2015. $17.
Get ready for “Talk Like a Pirate Day” with these twists on Mother Goose rhymes. They are very clever and only occasionally does the rhyme scheme falter from the originals. This would actually be a fun challenge for an upper level class to compare the originals to the pirate version and then try their hand at re-writing a Mother Goose rhyme according to a different criteria - science, math, biography, culture could all try their hand at it.
