Clumsy Crab by Ruth Galloway is a wonderful picture book with beautiful illustrations by the author. The story is fun to read-aloud and to listen to, with catchy alliteration and rhyme.
Nipper the Crab feels like he doesn’t fit in. Who hasn’t felt that way before? Everything he tries to do is wrong. His huge claws cause all kinds of problems when he plays with his friends. Finally, Nipper is able to use his claws to help a friend in need and he realizes he is special, after all.
Parents and teachers will enjoy reading this book to young children. I highly recommend it. A great lesson in individuality and that everyone has a talent.
