A Pirate’s Mother Goose by Nancy Sanders - ESSENTIAL

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.

EL - ESSENTIAL; MS, HS - OPTIONAL.  Cindy, Library Teacher
