Yesterday, we featured Carole P. Roman’s “If You Were Me and Lived In…” picture book series. Today, we are sharing with you some books from another one of her picture book series: “Captain No Beard”.
Last year, we were fortunate enough to read and review the first book in the Captain No Beard Series: “Captain No Beard: An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate’s Life“. Today, I’d like to shine the spotlight on some of the other books in the series.

About The Author: Carole P. Roman
Named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2012 for her first book, award winning author Carole P. Roman started writing as a dare from one of her sons. Using an imaginary game she played with her grandson as a base, Captain No Beard was born. It has followed with four more books to the series. Motivated by her love of yoga, Roman has also written a book that not only teaches four poses, but shows how easy and accessible yoga can be.
She has just finished the first of six books in a groundbreaking new nonfiction series about culture around the world. “If You Were Me and Lived in…” combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us. Writing for children has opened up a whole second act for her. While she is still working in her family business, this has enabled her to share her sense of humor as well as love for history and culture with the audience she adores. Roman lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children.
