  1. Arrgggghhh, ahoy matey’s! Love it! I especially enjoy how you’ve added the read aloud and the make your own eye patch. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing with us!

  2. What an adorable story by Diana, and how wonderfully read by Angie! It’s like I want to wrap little ole Ned and his buddies in bundles of yarn. The rhyme and rhythm help the sweet story along, as does the song. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Love Diana’s books, and what a fun craft! So great to have craft activities to do with my kids! Thanks, Angie!

  4. A rhyming story, a crafty pirate patch, and a catchy pirate song–who could ask for anything more? Thanks, Angie, for a fun read and craft idea!

  5. such a fun book. Thanks for sharing it but now I’ve got a problem…
    “We’re pirates, we’re pirates, a-sailing the sea…”

    How do I get the song out of my head!!!?

  6. What a fun way to start my day-pirates, knitting, and singing, too 🙂 Fab job, Angie! I’m feeling the rhyme and having a good time with Diana’s book!

  7. Thank you, Angie! You did such a great job reading AND singing! You have no idea how horrified I was the first time I read this in public and realized, gulp, I have to sing! LOL. 🙂

    Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments. Special thanks to my writing buddies for stopping by. *waves*

  8. I love a good pirate story. This one is chocked-full of pirate speech, fun rhymes, active verbs, surprise, and a resourceful main character. I love that Ned knitted a blanket to comfort the creature.
