Children’s Book Series Preaches Unity During Crisis

Children’s Book Series Preaches Unity During Crisis

When immersed in a troubling news cycle, sometimes fiction is best to help us process the world. In the latest installment of his children’s book series, former Ambassador David Mulford touches on the importance of coming together in a crisis.

Mulford’s Crab Lake series revolves around the adventures of the woodland inhabitants of a beautiful, snowy wilderness. The most recent volume explores the power of unity and friendship in times of uncertainty.

Main character Jeannie and her animal friends are confused and frightened when a mountain lion arrives at the Lake. While they nervously decide what to do about their mysterious new neighbor, Jeannie has a feeling he may not be as scary as he seems.

The Mountain Lion at Crab Lake is Mulford’s third installment in his series. He hopes it can address the importance of coming together when our community faces a dilemma.

As we all search for ways to remain connected, storytelling is as powerful a tool as ever. While we may not all awake to mountain lions at our doorsteps, readers young and old can understand how teamwork triumphs over fear.

For parents managing home-bound children, literature is a chance to come together as a family at bedtime. It may also be valuable food for thought as our communities and families adjust to strange new circumstances.
