Prince Noah and the School Pirates, by Silke Schnee, is a charming story that encourages all children to appreciate each other, regardless of their handicaps or developmental challenges.
The story begins with Prince Noah wandering into the castle kitchen and assisting the cook by cracking eggs. His parents notice him counting the eggs and decide to send him to school. The school, located on a ship, is one of many. There is one for girls, one for boys, one for blind children, and one for physically handicapped children. When pirates capture all of the boats, the children must learn to work together in order to escape.
This was a lovely story. The children begin in separate settings and end up working, learning, and playing together. I especially liked how all of the children had strengths and talents to share with the others.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a story with a great message for their children.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
