Review: The Crew Goes Coconuts by Carole P. Roman
There is a storm brewing on the Flying Dragon, and it's not about the weather. When the crew finds themselves parched and not enough juice to go around, blame falls on Matie the goat, Hallie's friend. Divided, they square off, ready for a fight and Captain No Beard must teach his crew that not only is bullying wrong, they must learn to value and respect each and every member of the crew. Watch the crew of the Flying Dragon learn an important lesson about being a true friend.
In this new book of her Captain No Beard series, Carole P. Roman introduces a new character aboard the imaginary flying ship, a goat with an unusual name. The goat is mistreated by half the crew which cause trouble upon the ship.
Captain No Beard intercedes and shows the crew that each of them have their own gifts, and that being hurtful to another is not the way a crew should act.
Bullying is a huge topic these days and is finally being noticed more. Possible solutions and action is being talked about through different media. I was pleased to see the author take on this subject with her books.
This subject is difficult because there are so many different levels of bullying but Carole P. Roman shows children that each person has things about them that are wonderful and some things that may not be so wonderful. However, each person has something that can be useful in society.
