"A wonderfully written book that will keep children's rapt attentions.

Are Pirates Polite is a pretty self-explanatory title. Pirates are known for their unsavory or "questionable" behavior. They're crude and rowdy, but does that have to mean they're ill-mannered. This story pairs each crude action with a polite "thank you" or "please" or one of the many other mannered phrases, showing that even at the worst of times, manners matter.
It's an incredibly fun read. The rhymes roll easy off the tongue making it continuously pleasant as your tot makes you read it for the hundredth time. The writing is creative and full of great imagery.
The images were a bit too life-like. Pirates as we see them are not pleasant looking men, especially for kids. Even the goofiness in many of the pictures couldn't erase the ick factor in others, leaving readers with a yearning for more cartoon-like or more illustrated pirates.
In the end, this book is sure to impress young kids with it's endless fun, creative writing, and cool topic.

"Youngsters can learn quite a lot about good manners from this amusing, over-the-top picture book written in rhyming text. Although the pirates on display in the illustrations, created with pencil, watercolor, gouache, and ink, are a gnarly, rambunctious collection, they are also exceptionally polite and considerate of others, even when dueling, plundering others' booty, or dividing their treasures. Young readers will probably be amused by how their perceptions of pirates are challenged in this children's book while older readers will refute their depiction since actual pirates were nothing like the ones described here. Still, the text and images provide examples of the best ways to behave and how to be respectful of the needs of others for privacy. My favorite image shows two pirates averting their eyes politely from the shocking spectacle of a mate who has emerged freshly scrubbed, from a nice hot bath, towel wrapped around his loins. The book will certainly prompt several sniggers from its intended audience. " said.

" Please someone buy me this book. The pictures are so detailed and pretty while also boyish. The story itself teaches manners and I love it. Such a hit for a little boy. " said.

" An interesting and entertaining take on learning manners " said.

" I thought it was a little confusing at times, but I like picture books that teach lessons- this one just had a little too much going on for me. " said.

" This is really cute and simple! I think it will be a great book for use in story time! " said.

" I enjoyed the illustrations and the rhymes but My 15 month old was not too crazy about it. " said.
