What is Talk Like a Pirate Day?
Talk Like a Pirate Day was created by two friends John Baur (Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap’n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon, U.S, back in 1995. During a racquetball game between Summers and Baur, one of them reacted to the pain with an outburst of “Aaarrr!”, and the idea was born.

As this year it falls on a Sunday, we will actually have a Pirate themed week starting the day after. I can’t wait! I will share with you as many lesson plans, films, books, and activities we can find in the hope that you also have fun!!
Pirate Picture Books
A Year on a Pirate Ship (Time Goes By) – Check out these eight action-packed scenes for a bird’s-eye view of the life and work of pirates on the open seas. See how the pirates attack a ship, deal with a whale, and handle a storm. Keep your eye on the calendar too. By spending a whole year with the pirate crew, you can watch events unfold as the seasons change.
The Pirates Next Door is a fantastic pirate book for younger children, and the pictures are really great.
Pirate Boy – After reading his favorite book about a pirate boy, Danny wonders what would happen if he sailed away on a pirate ship. Luckily, his mother reassures him that she would find him, even if she had to swim on a dolphin, battle sea monsters, and wield a bottle of pirate-shrinking magic spray to do it!
Pirate Books for Kids
If you like us have an older child, these pirate books for kids are probably more appropriate!
Pirates (Magic Tree House Research Guide, paper)
The Pirate World is a nonfiction book about pirates. Often romanticized in print and on the silver screen, real-life pirates were a brutal menace that plagued the high seas. In this book, Angus Konstam separates myth from reality, tracing the history of piracy through the centuries, from the pirates who plagued the Ancient Egyptians to the Viking raids and on to the era of privateers. He discusses the so-called “Golden Age of Piracy” and colorful characters such as Blackbeard and Captain Kidd, before examining the West’s initial encounters with Eastern pirates off the Chinese coast and the phenomenon of the modern pirate. Highly illustrated with color images and specially commissioned maps throughout, this is a unique exploration of the pirate world.
