grandma's book review - VeggieTales Pirate in Training - I'm Giving One Away!

Children will enjoy this new Veggie-story with the return of the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything and Junior! In this fun story Junior wants to be a pirate so he doesn't have to go to school anymore - after-all, pirates don't do anything so why would they need to go to school? But when the pirates start to tell Junior all the things they need school for . . . math, reading and geography . . . Junior learns he needs school for a lot of reasons . . . and to help him be and do, "anything God wants him to be!"
