THREE LITTLE SHRIMP … a Household Name!

When you think of popular children’s picture books, what titles come to mind?


Three Little Pigs …

Curious George

The Cat in the Hat

Frog and Toads are Friends

Green Eggs and Ham


We can all agree the list above could go on and on and on. There have been 100’s of children’s picture books that have become a household. Well, today, I would like to add one more to the list … THREE LITTLE SHRIMP! Let’s make our three favorite prawns a HOUSEHOLD NAME!

In order for that to happen, you and I must create an interest in this book. So, what is so special or even interesting about THREE LITTLE SHRIMP?

Most folks, especially from coastline areas, have enjoyed eating shrimp for decades. Yet, some few know what actually happens to them or what they may go through before they are caught and eaten. THREE LITTLE SHRIMP is that kind of book. Add the wonderfully colored illustrations by our teenaged artist, Jonathan Caron, and you have a book that can be used by teachers for science lessons about prey and predator.

Parents can also use this book for more than reading practice for their elementary child. The story line of THREE LITTLE SHRIMP can also be used by parents and guardians to warn child about leaving the safety of a group (family, class, etc.) to go exploring. There are hidden dangers in the word that many children do not perceive. The three young shrimp didn’t perceive there were under the watchful eye of a family of egrets, a redfish, a sea turtle or an old fisherman. And with a stroke of luck, these cute little brown shrimp escaped being captured and eaten each time.

These are two excellent themes that teachers and parents/ guardians around the world could teach to their students and/or children. These are two universal themes. This is why each of us needs to do their part to spread the word about THREE LITTLE SHRIMP!
