About the book: There is a storm brewing on the Flying Dragon, and it's not about the weather. When the crew finds themselves parched and not enough juice to go around, blame falls on Matie the goat, Hallie's friend. Divided, they square off, ready for a fight and Captain No Beard must teach his crew that not only is bullying wrong, they must learn to value and respect each and every member of the crew. Watch the crew of the Flying Dragon learn an important lesson about being a true friend.If you are unfamiliar with Captain No Beard, it is about brothers, sisters, and cousins playing in the kid's bedroom and the bed is the ship, the stuffed animals are the crew, and the story line is usually solving the issues that kids face - sharing, bullying, meanness, kindness. And in The Crew Goes Coconuts! they learn that looking and speaking differently from each other does not entitle them to belittle, make fun of, or not accept each other.
They soon learn that the goat (whose "goat" they keep trying to get - pun intended), has value to add to their play and gathering. They become thirsty. All drinks are gone. What are they to do? Ahoy there me matey! I see an island. And then the solution is solved by Matie the Goat.
I previously reviewed each of the Captain No Beard books and found them delightful, educational along the lines of character traits, colorful, and fun. Take a look at each of my reviews:
- Strangers On The High Seas
- Stuck In The Doldrums
- Pepper Parrot's Problem with Patience
- Captain No Beard (book 1 in series)
