There Was an Old Pirate Who Swallowed A Fish by Jennifer Ward
I have mentioned before that I am a big fan of the books like this that take a common story and alter the words with a new topic/subject. I realize I may be alone in this thought but kids love these books! It is familiar to them and they can look for the changes. We HAD to have this book because of the topics - Pirates! As you may have guessed from the title that this pirate did indeed swallow a fish....and a bird....and a map.....and a chest.....etc. Sure to be a winner with the kids - especially those reluctant boy readers!
