A funny rhyming story about the silly things pirates do when they go to school.

Pirates and their parrots go to school, and it's time to hang up their swords and have fun. They learn reading and math, and they bring pirate treasure for show-and-tell. For pirates, going to school is as much fun as a game of "walk the plank"!

When pirates go to school, they bring their parrots and hang their swords on the coat rack, and if you sit next to one, "better hold your nose because/ they smell of rotting fish."
