Young piggywinkles, ages 4-10, will enjoy a romp with Greenbeard! Andrea will read the story, GREENBEARD THE PIRATE PIG, ending with a rousing pirate shanty. Participants will learn how to do their very best, “AAaaarrrr,” and “AHOY!” and “AVAST!” and will learn how to sing like a pirate! A piratey good time, followed by Q & A.

What's included:
  1. A full-color PDF of the picture book, Greenbeard the Pirate Pig for you to keep (includes the words and piano music to Greenbeard's very own pirate shanty!)
  2. A 5-page coloring book PDF
  3. Potential ongoing "penpal" correspondence with Andrea, and a chance for young piggywinkles to send her their own piratey artwork and stories*
  4. lots of singing and silliness, including instructions on proper pirate behavior!

*Please note: Andrea's presentations always contain messages of empowerment, and seek to go beyond entertainment to inspire children to "reach for the stars." In this spirit, Andrea offers the option of "penpal" correspondence (with permission from parents and guardians) so that children can share their stories and artwork with her.

About the Author

One of Andrea’s first memories was of holding a picture book close and thinking, “I want to make drawings like these!” Since then, she has added writing to her list of THINGS-I-LOVE-TO-DO.
