When I Wore My Sailor Suit by Uri Shulevitz

Shulevitz, Uri When I Wore My Sailor Suit 32 pgs. Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 2009. PICTURE BOOK. $16.95. This is such a sweet story about the grand imagination of a little boy. Despite the rigors of a sailor's life, this little guy is courageous and braves all of the things a sailor must face....dangerous seas, pirates, and a scary man. He defeats all he must at sea, but soon realizes that his biggest battle is at home with the scary man watching him on the wall. Kids' imaginations will set sail, and they will love going on this sailing adventure! This story is also reminiscent of the author's life in Poland before World War II which makes the story come more alive for the reader. EL-ADVISABLE. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
