Julia will be reading Don't Worry, Little Crab. Why this book? Julia loves crabs and all sea creatures. Crabs walk in a funny and unique way. Julia likes the message that getting out of your comfort zone and taking a few steps may teach us to love doing what we feared. To her that is what bravery is. After the story, Julia will lead a discussion where everyone can share something that they were afraid to do, but did anyway. The jamboree will end with everyone doing their own unique “funny walk” which, of course, can be crab walking.
From the award-winning creator of Shh! We Have a Plan comes a vibrantly colorful story about mustering the courage to try something new.
Little Crab and Very Big Crab live in a tiny rock pool near the sea. Today they’re going for a dip in the big ocean. “This is going to be so great,” says Little Crab, splish-splashing and squelch-squelching along, all the way to the very edge. Then comes a first glance down at the waves. WHOOSH! Maybe it’s better if they don’t go in? With vivid colors, bold shapes, and his trademark visual humor, Chris Haughton shows that sometimes a gentle “don’t worry, I’m here” can keep tentative little crabs sidestepping ahead — and help them discover the brilliant worlds that await when they take the plunge.
