Pirate books for 6, 7 and 8 year olds

November 19, 2012

One of our customers recently asked me about books with pirates in, for  6 year olds. It seems that there are a lot of very popular books about pirates aimed at the under 5s, but relatively few for older children.

Pirate books for 6-8 year oldsHowever if you’re looking for something with a fairly easy reading level that they can read for themselves try “Stories of Pirates” from  Usborne Young Reading (Series 1). It is at Emerald reading level, and if you click on the following link you can look inside the book – “Stories of Pirates” (and if you do decide to buy at Amazon, we get a small percentage of the profit which enables us to keep Hummingbird Books going). One of the lovely things about the Usborne books is the beautiful colour pictures – pictures seem to be very important to children just getting going with “Read Alone” books.

Another lovely series for new readers, also at Emerald level, is the Corgi Pups, and in particular the book Yo Ho Ho. Although out of print now, you can still pick up new and used copies at Amazon. Great fun story all about Mr Cutlass, class 3’s new teacher who wears a spotted handkerchief and has a parrot on his shoulder! Pirate Books for 6-8 year olds
