Review: A Flag for the Flying Dragon: A Captain No Beard Story by Carole P. Roman

Title: A Flag For the Flying Dragon
Author: Carole P. Roman
Published: April 9, 2015
Genre: Children ages 4 on up
Review: Paperback provided by author and publisher to give an honest review.

It's business as usual on the Flying Dragon. Their mission is to find a flag for the ship. Captain No Beard sighs, "Being a captain is hard work," as he watches the busy crew preparing the vessel for their next adventure.

Polly is giving out pretzels; Linus is polishing a lamp. Matie is cracking coconuts, Cayla is stuffing holes, and Hallie is swabbing the deck. High overhead, trouble is brewing, and it is not the weather.

Mongo does not want any help from the newest crew member, and it is creating a hurricane of a mess on board.

The team must come together and find a task that will fit Zachary without interfering with their own fun. On the way, they acquire a flag that will unite them as both friends and crew.

Join the problem-solving crew of the Flying Dragon as they find a flag for their ship and a job for Zach.

We received this book to give an honest review.

Have we told you how much we love Captain No Beard?  Well if we haven't then yes we do. I think this series of books is a great series to have in not only your home but in the classroom as well.
Captain No Beard is all about using your imagination. 
With A Flag for the Flying Dragon we have Zachary who is a new character and it took us a while to remember who he was, because the last time we learned Hallie's mom was pregnant. So we were like oh that is Hallie's brother how cool. 
Zachary being a little one is into everything even though he wants to help and we read as everyone is coming up with an idea to find something for Zachary to do. At the end Captain No Beard finds the perfect job for Zachary. 
The crew is great at problem-solving problems that come aboard, at times there is a bit of grumpiness from the crew but it is always squashed with ideas on how to solve it. 
I love how there is a lesson within the book and in this one it is to include everyone in doing something and be nice as well.

K likes the captain and has said he hopes that he could be a captain of a ship one day.
