Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Bella the blue crab loved helping others. She lived in the Chesapeake Bay with her other sea friends; Sally the Starfish, Oscar the Octopus, and Tommy the Sea Turtle. She was a brave crab and she brought joy to the people around her. She was like a ray of sunshine and all the other sea creatures wanted to play with her. Bella and her sea friends would spend their days singing, swimming, and playing games. One day while swimming with her sea friends, Bella came across Cody, a little boy who was struggling to swim in the water.

Bella The Blue Crab by A.G. Vlahos is not only about teaching children life lessons but also makes them realize the role of these sea creatures when it comes to protecting the ocean. The author knits these beautiful messages of bravery, kindness, good deeds, and environmental awareness into the plot deftly and seamlessly, making the story a must-read for all young readers. The illustrations are bright and colorful and they give a good pace and movement to the story and breathe life into the characters. It is a good book for storytelling sessions at home, in classrooms and libraries to teach children kindness, good deeds, and bravery in an entertaining and interactive way. Bella the Blue Crab will leave a lasting impression on the minds of young readers with her positive behavior.


Bella the Blue Crab is an adorable Children’s book of helping others through acts of kindness, bravery and good deeds. The book is beautifully illustrated and captivates readers with pictures of the Chesapeake Bay and coastal towns along the Atlantic Coast.
