Rockabye Pirate – Timothy Knapman, illusAda Grey
Rock-a-bye pirate, in the crow’s nest
Mummy says bedtime, and Mummy knows best.
You’ve had your adventures, you’ve sailed the high seas,
So under the covers and go to sleep, please.
After sailing the seven seas and making other pirates walk the plank, Rockabye Pirate is sleepy.
There’ll be no more yo-ho-hoing and no more ‘A-harr me hearties!’
It’s time for loot-filled lullabies and dreams of buried treasure.
It would be lovely to see what you’ve done using the themes – either dressing up or going out somewhere related to the themes, or even just doing the activities! Please upload your photos to Instagram, and use the following tags – @nickelbooks @bloomsburybooks #BloomsburyPictureBooks
