Arrrggghhh…we have a new book in our collection of Christmas favorites ~ The Gingerbread Pirates.
It’s Christmas Eve, and Jim and his mother are making pirate gingerbread men to leave for Santa. Jim’s favorite is Captain Cookie, who carries a gingerbread cutlass and has a toothpick peg leg. The captain is much too good to be eaten, so Jim keeps him close by his bed. But late that night, when Jim is fast asleep, Captain Cookie step taps away on a daring adventure to find his pirate crew — and rescue them from that mysterious character he’s heard about: a cannibal named Santa Claus.
After we read the book we set to work making our own crew of gingerbread pirates.
Sorry Santa, I don’t think this crew will make it until Christmas!
