Synopsis

Pirates to the Rescue: Helping Polly Parrot: Pirates Can Be Kind by Tom Easton

Polly Parrot loves being a pirate parrot, but sometimes life on board ship can be quite hard. She has no perch, and every time she lands on a mast it seems a sail is unfurled and she's knocked off. The captain has his bed, the sailors have their hammocks, but poor Polly has nowhere to sleep. One day, Polly is so tired that she goes to sleep when she's supposed to be on lookout. The ship nearly crashes on some rocks, but luckily Nell notices and stops the ship in time. Polly feels awful. But the crew realise that they haven't been very kind to Polly and buy her a new perch so that she can have somewhere to sleep The books in the 'Pirates to the Rescue' series are designed to help children to recognise the virtues of generosity, honesty, politeness and kindness. Reading these books with children will help them to understand that their actions and behaviour have a real effect on people around them. The books will help young readers to recognise what is right and wrong and what to do when faced with difficult choices.Notes for parents, guardians and teachers are included at the end of the story to help give starting points for discussion and follow-up activities to help encourage positive behaviour.
