Welcome! The Happy Crab is a children’s book based on a true story experienced by me, Kevin, and our son, Steevenson. Click the play button below to see the real Happy the Crab heading back to his home.
– Did you see the tips of his legs peeking out of the shell in the photo of Steevenson holding him upside down? Watch the video again if you missed them!
– This trip took place March 14th-16th, 2020 a.k.a- the weekend the world shut down because of COVID! The first scene was recorded from the front seat of the RV we had purchased that Saturday and the last scene was recorded two days later as we passed by my mom’s house on our way back home from the beach (early) to quarantine.
– The campground we were staying at was called The Hideaway Retreat and it’s located in Navarre, Florida.
About the book:
Happy is an adventurous little crab whose world is suddenly turned upside down (literally!) when a mama and her son discover his large, unbroken shell while on vacation at the beach. After deciding to keep the shell as a souvenir, the boy unexpectedly feels the crab move inside and is suddenly faced with a decision: take him home or let him go. His compassion for the crab and thoughtful decision to release him gently reminds readers of the importance of selflessness and highlights how our environment, relationships, and experiences contribute greatly to our happiness.
