I will be featuring a different book in each of these posts until I have featured all 33 of my books. In this post the spotlight is on
Clarence Henry the Hermit Crab – published in February 2018
This book was written in memory of a real hermit crab that inhabited our 80-gallon saltwater fish tank at that time. He is no longer with us. Clarence Henry was an entertaining fellow. He did come to us with one less leg and one less claw. These appendages could possibly have resulted from a fight with another crab at the pet store. I wrote this story around the fact that he could still do his job of keeping the tank clean in spite of fewer appendages.
All Jemsbooks carry life lessons for children. I hope this will teach them that you can do anything that you put your mind to and succeed in life. Clarence Henry teaches children to work hard and do the best you can do and be happy with who you are.
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 lives 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.

My goal in writing for children is to encourage them to read daily to enhance their life through good health and increase their creativity. Please read to your children daily even after they can read by themselves. This is a wonderful time to bond, cuddle, and get closer to your children. They will love and remember fondly the times you spent with them. Please keep reading and I will keep writing! Happy Reading Everyone!
Please consider giving books to all the children on your list for all occasions. There is nothing better than to see a child’s eyes light up when you give him/her a book – even more so when you read the book to them. You are giving them so much more than you could ever imagine, e.g., you spark their imagination, heighten their creativity, lift their spirits, increase their vocabulary, open up a whole new world to them, enhance their health and welbeing and encourage them to love reading. The gift of a book is worth more than gold to our children, grandchildren. Keep reading and gifting books to children. Let’s bring up a generation of readers and thinkers. Thank you for your support!
Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
