A Bite-Sized Pirate by K.S D’arcy is a simply beautiful book for the under fives.
The story is written in simple rhyme with just four lines per double page. There is a rhythm to the words, enabling our children to join in when they have heard it a few times.
Each page is beautifully illustrated by Zenja Gammer. A friendly looking parrot is the subject of each illustration. His big, beautiful eyes draw the reader in. We learn that he visits us in our dreams. As he watches over us, we feel safe.
Every illustration and verse can be starting points for discussion with our children.
I always love K.S. D’arcy’s children’s books. They are always so beautiful. Every home with young children should invest in her books. They are beautiful heirlooms.
I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
