Review: El Increíble Barco del Capitán Marco (Spanish)

Author: Alicia Acosta
Illustrator: Cecilia Moreno
Publisher: Nube Ocho
Ages: 4-8

With this book, you get a great story and a fun, crafting adventure!

Moreno’s, bright bold illustrations paired with Acosta’s engaging, momentum driving narrative, take us on a pirate journey unlike any you have experienced before. Together with Capitán Marco and his crew, we sale from Japan, to Siberia, and other ports as well. Throughout the journey, we engage in activities that tear our ship apart and force the crew to abandon! As if this were not enough excitement, there is a special activity built right-into the book.

At the beginning of the journey, you learn how to craft a paper boat. Along the journey, you are prompted (as encounters occur in the story) to slowly and carefully tear that boat apart. At the end, if you’ve performed the tears correctly, you are rewarded with a treasure exactly like the one discovered by el Capitán and his crew! [Make a few boats. Children will want to find the treasure over and over again!]

This book rings all the bells: an engaging story, a hands on activity, bold illustrations. Get ready to read this one again and again.
