Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great story for your Class! I am a teacher of a grade 4/5 class and during our unit on oceans, I intergrated songs about the sea. Being a Parrothead myself I thought this book was a great addition to my class. I also taught the class the song "Jolly Mon" (the music is at the back of the book). The kids really enjoyed the book and I then had them turn their favorite song into a picture book. A great way to introduce the next generation to Jimmy Buffett and create some new Parrotheads!

About the Author

Singer/songwriter/author Jimmy Buffett has become a legend of popular culture as the composer of such classic songs as "Margaritaville" and "Cheeseburger in Paradise." He has recorded more than thirty albums, most of which have gone gold, platinum, or multiplatinum, and his sold-out concert tours are an annual rite of summer for his fans. In addition to his musical credits, Buffett is also one of only six authors who have had number-one New York Times bestsellers in both fiction (Where Is Joe Merchant?) and nonfiction (A Pirate Looks at Fifty).
