Pirate Nap: A Book of Colors by Danna Smith and illustrated by Valeria Petrone is a piratical adventure created from the imagination of two brothers before nap time, all dressed up in their pirate attire including a “white” bandana, “yellow” treasure, a “red” towel. They turn their surroundings into an assortment of booty in an array of colors. All of a sudden they are set upon by a purple monster from the sea, who is actually their little sister, but she grabs the loot and is off! They hurry quick to catch the monster and find their ship (their bed) with their trusty pirate dog aboard and, with the black pirate flag flying, they eventually settle down to a nap. The pirate mom helps them settle in. “Calm blue water. Briny deep. Pirates, monsters, sail to sleep.” See this book listed in our catalog
