Captain No Beard: Strangers on the High Seas by Carole P. Roman
Captain No Beard and the crew of the Flying Dragon welcome a new crew member when Cabin Girl Cayla joins the ship. Responsible for his little sister, Captain No Beard is not very happy because he finds his newest charge a distraction. When faced with danger, the captain must find a way to escape. While learning valuable lessons about strangers, the crew realized not to judge somebody because they are young or small. Strength comes in all sizes! (taken from Amazon descriptions)
This book does a great job of teaching children not to talk to strangers. It also teaches the importance of not marginalizing a person because of their size or ability to keep up. In the end, they find help in the tiniest and and most unlikely of the crew.
This book, as well as all the others in this series, has great illustrations that the children loved.
