Pirates are always a fun topic to teach our young ones.
My wife found a pirates book from the library and it proved to an instant hit for my son.
He likes looking at the colorful illustrations and it keeps him busy for a while flipping through the pages.
I always liked pirates as they are always having different exciting adventures.
These are some of the best pirate board books for toddlers that I found.
