Carole P Roman brings readers the fifth in the Captain No Beard series with THE TREASURE OF SNAKE ISLAND. Like in the other books, Alexander and his group of friends are pretending they are part of a pirate ship. In this book, Polly sounds a warning she learned from a book while they are watching the sun rise, "Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Red sky in the morning, sailors warning," says Polly. All the shipmates become concerned and wonder where Polly learned such a thing. "In a book," Polly states. As the crew battles through a storm, they question Polly about books. After finding a map, they realize there is treasure to be found on Snake Island. Will they make it to Snake Island and find a treasure? You will have to read it to find out.

As always, Roman's books are creative, fun, and impart a lesson for kids. By reading this book, you can remind your child of the joy of reading. The best part of reading books is that there is a book out there for everyone to enjoy. Share this book and lots of books with your kids. ( )

Whenever Alexander and his cousin Hallie hop on Alexander's bed to play, they become Captain No Beard and his fearless pirate crew of 'The Flying Dragon'. They set sail for a voyage of imagination as First Mate Hallie, Mongo the Monkey, Linus the loudmouthed lion, and Fribbet the floppy frog - who are in reality, three stuffed animals. Together, Alexander and Hallie sail the seven seas in a magical vessel bound for dangerous and exciting adventures.

I must say that I enjoyed reading these books. They were quick reads for me and overall, I would give the entire series an A+! In my opinion, this series would make a great gift for children. Each book teaches children valuable lessons such as patience and tolerance; sharing; responsibility and cooperation; being a good friend and what to do when meeting strangers. ( )

The Treasure of Snake Island is the fifth volume of the Captain No Beard series, but my first! It is a fun pirate story with a search for a treasure – a very special treasure.

I love the wide age range that will enjoy this book. Young non-readers will enjoy visualizing the story in the full-page colorful illustrations as it is read. Colors, rhymes, and the animals will appeal to the pre-school age, and older readers will be challenged with the characters and dialog.

First Mate Hallie, Mongo the Monkey, Polly the Parrot, Fribbet the frog, Cabin Girl Cayla, and of course, Captain No Beard will fascinate and entertain both boys and girls. I highly recommend this very entertaining pirate book!

I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. ( )
