"How I Became a Pirate" By: Melinda Long and David Shannon

How I Became a Pirate - Melinda Long, David Shannon

A story of a boy and his crazy adventure on a ship full as pirates. They set off to bury the treasure but as the journey continues the little boy begins to realize the importance of his family. I would use this book to teach sequence of events. Students can determine the order of events and the mood of the main character during these events. I could also use this book to show plot, problems and solutions in text.
