Kay here. Are you as excited about December as I am?
I love December. Where I live, it means snow! Lot’s of snow for sledding and for making a snowman.
My brother Jay and I love playing in the snow. We also love the snow because… well… the Crabbies can’t get around as easily. They slip and slide and PLOP! They’re flat on their stomachs!
Last December, King got this silly idea to make a snowman and he had Too-Tired, Achy and Can’t-Do help. How funny is that?
Of course, Too-Tired was too tired to do anything and Achy was too sick to help. Can’t-Do didn’t even want to try. King called to Hurry-Up to help, but he learned fast that he was wearing the wrong kind of skates!
Finally, King built a snowman all by himself. Miss Becky snapped a picture when he finished.
When Miss Becky takes the CrabbieMasters out to build a snowman, we will be sure she takes a picture. We think… no, we know… we can do better than King!
Happy December, everyone!
We are very excited as our illustrator, Erik, finishes the artwork for our CrabbieMasters series. He’s doing an awesome job! We love the picture above! It really shows what we’re all about. Powering-Up and keeping the Crabbies away today and every day!
Our editor has been busy working on a special project for us. We can’t wait to share the CrabbieMasters program and our books with you!
That’s all for today! Keep the Crabbies away and have a good day!
Yours in beating the Crabbies,
The holiday season keeps us busy, and it’s the perfect time for Hurry-Up to sneak into our lives. In fact, it’s a favorite time of the year.
Many of us are busy decorating, shopping, baking, attending holiday parties, writing holiday greetings all while keeping up with routine tasks and commitments.
Hurry-Up can bug adults more than kids because he likes to make kids take their time while Mom, Dad, or some other adult waits. And Hurry-Up loves to make people late.
This time of year, it’s really important to keep Hurry-Up away. If he does show up, send him away! One way to do this is to allow yourself a little extra time when you know the day will be hectic. Kids can help by doing what they’re asked the first time, and by doing what they know they have to do without being asked, such as getting dressed and brushing their teeth.
Cutting down on the holiday rush will keep the other Crabbies away. Remember… sometimes the Crabbies work as a team. Hurry-Up would like nothing more than to watch you eat on the run so Achy will show up or… get you into a squabble so Get-Along comes along.
Let’s not forget Junk-Food. When we’re in a hurry and hungry, we tend to grab fast and easy snacks… like junk food!
CrabbieMasters know how to beat Hurry-Up and we hope you do too! As we prepare for the holiday season, we need to remember how to chase the Crabbies away and keep them away!
As Kay says, “When asked to do it, we get right to it!”
See you next time,
