I'm so excited and honored to be apart of this ground breaking book series.
The Little Crab Finds a Friend Synopsis: Let's face it, leaving home for the unknown is scary. It's scary if you're six and facing the first day of school or if you're thirty six and facing the first day at a new job. Leaving home for the first time is also scary if you're a Little Crab who has never ventured far from his Dear Mom's side which is where we begin our story. The Little Crab lives alone with his Dear Mom in a sunken submarine. Dear Mom home schools her Little Crab and teaches him all she knows while showering him with love each day. Who would want to leave such a nurturing habitat? Not the Little Crab, never. He refuses. Yet, we often don't have a say when life decides to shift and change. When Dear Mom falls ill the Little Crab ventures out of the submarine to help but is swept up in a freight boat's net and taken far, far away from all he has ever known. Determined to get home, he soon learns that he cannot make it in this world all on his own.
The Little Crab Finds a Friend is a series of 12 books chronicling the Little Crab's encounter with twelve very different friends on his journey home. Each friend is characterized by one of the twelve signs of the zodiac. Using this familiar archetype of astrology or birthdays, the Little Crab interacts with twelve very different personalities learning a valuable lesson from each one.
Then we share with parents extra insight for consciously parenting and nurturing your little ones with the help of Astrology and without having to venture far at all.

Book One: Aries: Ram (Ewe) Value: Bravery Lesson: Bravery comes in many forms. Aries: The Aries Ram represents the value of having a child-like wonder and exuberance for life and the fun that comes from exploring it with courage and drive. Lesson: Bravery Bravery is when you have the courage to keep going even when you are scared or uncertain of the outcome. The Little Crab reveals that courage comes in all shapes and sizes and we each take action in our own unique way.
Conscious Parenting With Astrology
Understanding our unique approach to life through the lens of Astrology reveals that we are each a unique design of the entire Zodiac. We each contain all of the wonderful qualities and characteristics of each sign, creating our own special way of navigating life. And we each struggle in different ways to reach the same goals; security, fulfillment, love, joy and connection. Guiding children with this intention and teaching them compassion and acceptance for both themselves and others can support their journey and enrich the bond between you and your own Little Crab.
