In rhyming text, this story demonstrates that even pirates can be polite, and say "please" and "thank you." "Pirates are unruly

and pirates love to fight,

but pirates still say 'please' and 'thanks'

'cause pirates are polite."

Are Pirates Polite? shows pirates' rowdy activities and teaches manners lessons. These pirates remember to say "please" and "thank you." If pirates can be polite, surely young readers can, too!

Fun, rhyming text by Corinne Demas and Artemis Roehrig pairs pirates' questionable activities with their lead-by-example lessons in manners. David Catrow's humorous, zany illustrations depict the swashbuckling nature of the pirates. Follow along as pirates have fun on a pirate ship, divide up their treasure, and teach manners. Aargh!

Pirates are unruly / ...

"Pirates are unruly / and pirates love to fight, / but pirates still say "please and "thanks" / 'cause pirates are polite." And so begins co-authors Corinne Demas and Artemis Roehrig's amusing guide to good manners, with its rollicking rhythm and entertaining rhymes. Twelve important lessons about courtesy, from using one's inside voice to waiting in line, are profiled here, and paired with quirky illustrations from David Catrow. Featuring an unlikely thematic pairing, Are Pirates Polite? offers an entertaining introduction to a topic - good manners - that some children might find rather tiresome, but which is necessary for their social development. The text is just made to read aloud, while the colorful artwork, which depicts various scruffy-looking pirates being rambunctious, but also scrupulously polite, will keep young readers and listeners riveted. Recommended to anyone looking for children's stories about pirates and/or good manners.
