What a perfect book, in so many different ways! This book covers a wide variety of topics while still being easy to read. It's an uplifting book about slavery. The grandfather wants to teach the children that some pirates were nice back in the day, and that the slaves worked to help the pirates. No more spoilers!

My 7 and 4 year olds have really liked all the Ana and Andrew books we’ve read, but they LOVE this one. These books are such great opportunities to introduce and teach them a little history without over complicating it like I usually do.

Such a cute and educational series of early readers. This time Ana and Andrew are off to spend time with their grandparents in Savannah, where they learn about nice pirates, slaves building a church, and the Underground Railway, in an age appropriate way with lots of great vocab building words.

A fun early chapter book series with great American history lessons worked into the story.
