In this Back to School Giveaway, 5 Minutes for Mom contributor, Jenny Nanninga, shares a look into a series of stories to spark your children’s imagination. This post is sponsored, but as always the opinions expressed are those of the writer.
Books. I love them. I have been a reader since an early age and ended up becoming an English major and teacher. My daughter is following in my footsteps and has more books than I do. I am always looking for new books to inspire and engage her.
We have recently begun reading chapter books together and I am on the lookout for educational, fun, and meaningful stories for her eager mind to soak up.
The stories of Captain No Beard, inspired by a game the author played with her grandson, include action, humor, and valuable lessons of character and information.
The illustrations are beautiful and bright and will help keep your reader interested in the story. One of the most difficult jumps from toddler books to chapter books can be the absence of pictures and color. The Captain No Beard books have imaginative illustrations to help young readers visualize a more complicated plot than most toddler books use.
Some of the Captain No Beard series books are:
- Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate’s Life
- The Crew Goes Coconuts!: A Captain No Beard Story Volume 6
- Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience: A Captain No Beard Story
- Captain No Beard: Strangers on the High Seas, Book 4 of the Captain No Beard Series
- Stuck in the Doldrums: A Lesson in Sharing- A Captain No Beard Story
- The Treasure of Snake Island: A Captain No Beard Story Volume 5
These books would be a perfect set to acquire as you prep your children for the upcoming school year. They can go back to school excited to learn after reading through this fun series! These stories will spark their imagination and have lessons and plots that can easily be turned into additional learning activities for young ones.
Find the series on Amazon today!
