44 months - not my favorite style of book. Reminds me too much of Run Away Bunny but not nearly as well done or cute. ( )

Moms never give up! ( )
  Sullywriter | Apr 3, 2013 |
While a boy and his mom were reading a book called Pirate Boy, the boy asked his mom, “What if I want to be a pirate and sail away on a pirate ship?” His mom reassures him that she will follow him wherever he goes and that she will be there with him to protect him from all danger.

A gentle story that reminds children that moms will always be there for them.

“’Okay. But, Mom, what if there are sea monsters, and they want to eat you up?’

‘Then I will spray them with my magic spray. SSSSSSS. And they will get smaller and smaller and smaller. They will be as small as your goldfish.’” ( )
