Pirate BookList: 22 Non-Fiction Pirate Books for Kids!

**The posts I write might contain affiliate links or be written in collaboration with businesses or brands. Please see my disclosure policy for more information.**

Last week we talked about our Pirate Chapter Book Booklist that I created specifically for our upcoming Saturday Book Club Linky Party coming up Saturday the 14th. It was (and still is) my hopes to provide Saturday Book Club participant with some books they can review and create activities around.

Saturday Book Club

Quick Review: Our first club meeting/Linky Party will be September 14th where we’ll be reading and creating our way through a Pirate book theme and since I didn’t want to leave everyone hunting for pirate books to jump into, I decided to create a resource list that our Saturday Book Club Linky participants can use if they’d like. You can find the Pirate Chapter Books Booklist HERE.

BUT, what about those of you who prefer non-fiction books for your family?
