Engaging book about a pirate who visits a family of three, a grandmother and two children.
The pirate is on a treasure hunt and explains he needs to dig right under their house. The grandmother sends him away, but he starts digging anyway, and... He finds the treasure! He shares his precious loot with the family.
Great series for beginners. The adult reads the left hand page, while the child reads the right hand page (easier). This is the first book of the Usborne series.
Nice illustrations, too.
Each of these books has a number of exercises at the end of the story: puzzles, quizzes, and so on.
