'Joe the Crab Takes a Walk' to Kehrs Mill Elementary

Local author Tim Hill says he wants to incorporate life lessons in his series of children's book.

Children's author Tim Hill shared his book "Joe the Crab Takes a Walk" with students at at on Friday, reading from his latest release which deals with themes such as diversity and acceptance.

The book is the first of a four-part series about self esteem, which Hill said is worth talking about as children mature.

“As parents, when we see what is happening in our children’s lives, we try to guide them,” Hill said. “The idea for Joe the Crab came from improvising bedtime stories for my kids. From there, I decided to start working on this series.”

Reading Specialist Sharon Arsenault organized the event as part of Kehrs Mill’s Reading Week activities, noting the book's important message.

“Tim’s series addresses topics that all children deal with,” Arsenault said. “His presentation not only helped students connect with his message, but it also generated excitement for reading.”    

Hill's second book, which deals with bullying, is scheduled to be released in April.
