Don’t Worry, Little Crab – Chris Houghton

Little Crab takes a step…
then another…

Little Crab has made a choice: He’s going to see the ocean today.
Do you remember what it felt like to be a kid in this giant world? Countertops seemed like mountains standing in the middle of our kitchen, and the neighbor’s dog might as well have been a Saint Bernard. Little Crab has never left his cozy home, but today he’s decided it’s time to see the ocean! With the support of his best buddy, he finds that every scary journey begins with one step, then another, and then another. Before Little Crab knows it, he’s venturing through an exciting underwater world filled with new friends — It’s not scary at all!

Little Crab teaches little ones that it’s okay to be afraid.
New things are scary, and even the bravest of crustaceans have days when we want to hide away in our familiar shells instead of exploring somewhere new. Whether your kiddo is afraid of the dark, starting a new school, or going to a new place, Don’t Worry, Little Crab is a fantastic story to visit!

Questions to ask your kiddos:
***Have you ever been BRAVE?
***What did you do? Were you scared?
***Little Crab had a great friend help them, right? How could you be a friend like that?
