You and your young readers will take heart from Don’t Worry, Little Crab (Candlewick). Little Crab is bravely venturing off to the big ocean–except the big ocean turns out to be very, well, BIG! Can Little Crab do it?
One lucky teacher will be randomly selected to win this book. To enter the drawing, submit a comment to our blog by Thursday, April 9, and let us know how brave you’re feeling today. Super brave like Very Big Crab? Not so brave like Little Crab? Something in between? (Congratulations to Karen, who is the winner of our prize.)
