Title: The Pirate Train

What's the Story?:
From Goodreads.com: "The Pirate Train tells
the story of the Yo-Ho-Matey family whose youngest son upsets their
pirating plans (he gets seasick), and they have to re-imagine their life
as a result. In the first book, the Yo-Ho-Matey family buys their train
and travels to Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas to dig for
treasure, but each book features a new adventure that further develops
the characters and highlights fun destinations for treasure-seekers."
My Two Cents:
"The Pirate Train" is a very sweet story about a family of Pirates who have to leave the high seas when one of their children gets seasick. Filled with great illustrations (definitely one of my favorite parts of the book - the illustrations are very colorful and cute), this book has a good lesson about family. As this book shows, family can make the most difficult things easy when they go through it together. There is also a good book about making the best of things when things change (even this mama still needs that lesson).
This was a great book to share with my girls and I know it's one that we will revisit a lot!
