Book of the Week: Pirates Don’t Take Baths

pirates don't take baths john segal

Back when I first started blogging (in the olden days : ), I featured one of John Segal’s books and he reached out to me via email to thank me for the post. I was so surprised and so pleased! We’ve stayed in touch ever since and I was happy to hear about his newest publication.

It’s called Pirates Don’t Take Baths. My kids love this book — especially Oscar! It’s a back-and-forth conversation between mother and child. He’s trying to argue his way out of a bath, and mom is playing along.

The story is cute and I’m such a fan of John’s illustration style. I love how he handled the smoke here:

Such a fun addition to our library.

This looks great! There’s a song called “Pirates Don’t Take Baths” on the CD Let’s Go Everywhere that’s really catchy. It would be cool to give the CD & book or use them together at storytime :)

What a fun gift that would be, Amanda! Thanks for the idea.

Sounds like a lovely book. Will look it up at the library.
I would love it if you linked up to my Book Sharing Monday post where we share favorite children’s books.

This book looks darling. I agree, the smoke is great.

I’ll have to get that on our next library trip. The favorite pirate book at my house is, “How I Became a Pirate.” I just like reading it because it’s fun to do the pirate voices, ARRR.
