Pirate Nap by Danna Smith, illustrated by Valeria Petrone is especially great for young children who love anything to do with pirates. The young pirate in the story has adventure after adventure throughout the book, and each of them gives little readers a new color to consider and see. (The names of the colors are the color they depict throughout the story. For instance, the word yellow is colored yellow in the story.) "YELLOW treasures buried deep. Lucky pirates. Loot to keep!" The book ends with, "Calm BLUE water. Briny deep. Pirates, monster, sail to sleep."

A wonderful story for youngsters that pleases on many levels while teaching the basic colors.
