Celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day with This Giveaway for a Greenbeard the Pirate Pig Book and Plush Set!

Arrr, Matey! You might be ordered to walk the plank if you don’t celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day! Mark your calendar because it’s coming up on September 19th. I’ve got a great way to celebrate the day with your kids or students: Read Greenbeard the Pirate Pig, by Andrea Torrey Balsara! Greenbeard is actually a guinea pig pirate, but he wasn’t always a pirate; first, he was a farmer who loved his lettuce (which is what turned his beard green). But one day he breathed in a salty sea breeze and felt inspired to pursue a life at sea. So, he put together his best pirate outfit (complete with a lettuce leaf in his hat and a carrot as a sword) and headed to the sea. There he bought a ship for a song and christened his ship The Golden Lettuce. He hired a rat as his first mate and off they went to sail the seven seas. They were bound for adventure! And Greenbeard sang:

Yo, Ho! Yo, Ho! A pirate pig I be!
Yo, Ho! Yo, Ho! I sail the seven seas!
With wind in my whiskers and salt in my paws!
With mold on my biscuits and grit in my claws!
I’m Greenbeard the Pirate, it’s adventure I seek!
ʼTil my lettuce has wilted or my boat has sprung a leak!

The notes to the song are included so you can play the song on an instrument or sing the tune if you read music. This is such a cute book, and children will love reading about Greenbeard the Pirate Pig. Plus, more adventures will be coming! Learn more about the author (who is also the illustrator) and her books at www.torreybalsara.com. And be sure to visit http://greenbeardthepiratepig.com to learn more about Greenbeard the Pirate Pig!
