I love the illustrations.
It's kind of a ridiculous story about little girl pirates who steal the front of the boy's house and put it on the front of their pirate ship to disguise it. And then they steal treasure from some mean, grown up pirates. So, maybe the message is a little strange, but it's just one of those adventure before bedtime type of things.
Yep, every time we get to this page my son says, "That's me!". I'm wondering when he's going to realize that it doesn't really say his name in the book. He can read and write his name, so I'm kinda surprised he hasn't yet.
My kids think this is hilarious.
My son loves this ending. He always points out the train set in the floor. "That's me and that's my train" is what he says. It's so cute.
If you haven't ever done it, definitely find a book (that you won't mind reading over and over) with a kid that resembles yours and start reading it with their name. They'll love it! I'm wishing I'd done it with my daughter, but now she can read...maybe I'll find one that really does have her name since she does have a common name. Happy reading!
