Walter is a children’s book about a frog with an umbrella. The umbrella is rainbow colored to represent inclusion, acceptance, unity, and diversity. More specifically, the umbrella is a metaphor for Walter’s outlook on life, which is the focus of the book. Walter, older and more seasoned than all his other pond dwelling neighbors, sees life a bit differently than others. Walter’s message is one of community, teamwork, understanding, patience, inclusion, and coming together for the common good in times of crisis. Having learned this lesson after a harrowing experience involving a natural disaster, the pond community sees the light and in turn realizes the importance, truth, and value in Walter’s message.

I am a father of two, husband, veteran, and retired registered nurse. I have held many positions as a nurse including nurse manager for a number of years. Health care is a very challenging field. I still work a couple days a week and so does my wife. She is also a nurse. We have been married 25 years. Healthcare is especially challenging during this time of the Covid virus. I believe this book, Walter, is a timely message, especially for kids who need some direction as it pertains to pulling together and taking on the responsibility of doing their part as a productive member of a community.
