A traditional counting rhyme with boat-load of pirate fun!
Ten little pirates sailing out to sea,
Looking for adventure, happy as can be.
Are they hunting treasure? Are they going far?
Ten little pirates all say, 'Arrrrrr!'
Ten little pirates set out to sea in search of adventure. But what will the ten little pirates do when they meet a hurricane . . . and a giant squid . . . and a Hungry Shark
This fun-filled rhyming story, which incorporates counting backwards from ten to one, is great to share with young children who are learning about numbers. The colourful, humourous illustrations feature objects to spot and count on every page. With a bouncy, rhythmic text and lots of great sound words, this piratical adventure is perfect for sharing again... and again!

Comments about Ten Little Pirates:
I bought this for my 3 year old grandson to help get him interested in understanding numbers. Apparently it is a great success because he already has a keen interest in pirates, resulting from a previous sticker book.
A rollicking read with an easy rhythm and jaunty illustrations... an excellent addition to books that help with counting. Vanessa Lewis (The Book Nook, Hove) Fabulous rhymes weave a clever tale... the abundance of things to spot and count on every page will keep little readers guessing what's coming next.
