J. Steven Spires, author of The Oak Tree and Three Little Shrimp, will be at Bay Books signing his book on Saturday, September 12th from 5:00-7:00.

Three Little Shrimp by local author and educator J. Steven Spires and illustrated by Jonathan Caron is about a troop of shrimp head off to the open sea. On the way three young shrimp, awestruck by the wonders around them, swim away from the safety of the group to explore. The three young shrimp are unaware of the dangers lurking in water. For unseen predators watch as they play and swim right in front of them. Without the protection of the shrimp troop, the three little shrimp may become the next meal for one of these hungry meat-eaters. Despite their best efforts, the predators are unable to catch the small brown prey. As the day comes to a close, the three shrimp rejoin their troop and together they swim to the sea bottom to sleep soundly on their sea beds.

The second book by Spires and Caron is titled. The Oak Tree, which tells the timely story of love and family in the midst of a storm. While preparing for an immense storm, a family evacuates leaving behind their home and an old oak tree. The oak tree must endure the hardships of the storm alone, clinging to hopeful thoughts of the family’s safe return. After weeks of despair, the family returns to their damaged home and rebuilds next to their old weathered oak tree.
