LIMERICKS FOR JEMSBOOKS!
Here is a Limerick for one of my newest books #10 (2018), Clarence Henry the Hermit Crab, about a pet we had in one of our fish tanks (saltwater).
I have had lots of fun writing limericks for my previous books. I just had to do one for Clarence Henry. I don’t want him to feel left out.
If you are just stopping by and would like to read the limericks for my other books go to Louey, Ricky, Lamby, Jerry, Jesse, Broose, Sebastian, Colby, Jeffrey. There are 11 children’s books presently, a new one (a fairy tale) will be coming this summer.
CLARENCE HENRY THE HERMIT CRAB
There once was a hermit crab named Clarence Henry.
Who lived in a tank with fish aplenty.
He came to his new home missing a leg and a claw.
But fortunately for this there is no law.
Now Clarence Henry stays deep in his shell.
Until one day he’ll be whole again and well.
Clarence Henry is different from other hermit crabs. He came to his new home minus one claw and a leg. He needs to protect himself until he can grow new appendages. Will Clarence Henry be able to meet the challenges in his new water world?
Clarence Henry was a real aquatic hermit crab who lived in a saltwater fish tank in our home. We watched him interact with the other creatures in the tank.
He was resilient, intelligent, and a joy to have as a pet. We took some photos of him as he grew his claw and leg and changed shells.
We shared these photos and facts about hermit crabs in the back of the book. I hope you will enjoy them. This book will make a wonderful resource for classrooms.
All Jemsbooks children’s books are written in rhyme with life lessons. In Clarence Henry children will learn that it is important to work hard and not to let anything prevent you from doing a job at everything you undertake. Also, it is okay to be different from others. Always believe in yourself.

“Clarence Henry the Hermit Crab” is a wonderful story, based on a true story supported by real pictures. Apparently author Janice Spina and her husband, the illustrator, took real pleasure in observing this resilient creature in their fish tank.
The hermit crab was their pet, which was missing a claw and one of his legs. The story disclosed a few challenges that newcomer met while growing his new claw and leg. Smart, hardworking, and tough, the courageous crab dealt with his disabilities bravely as he moved ahead to his full recovery. He worked hard, keeping himself busy cleaning the tank and getting along with other occupants in his new home.
The photos and facts about hermit crabs that the Spinas share with the readers are educational and entertaining. The facts about the life of these resilient water creatures are an extra bonus. This book will make a good, useful source for teachers and homeschooling and readers like me, people who have no knowledge about the crabs.
Clarence Henry teaches children to have patience, dedication, and stay strong while going through their own tests. The ailing crab did not give up. Instead, he worked hard and bravely overcame his obstacles. He may have felt different from the other occupants in the tank, but it did not stop him from focusing on his goal.
As in other inspiring books by the Spinas, children will enjoy this book for many reasons: a true teaching story, educational facts, fascinating photos, and the message this book conveys. Never, never, never, never give up!
