CV NEWS FEED // Riley Gaines recently launched a children’s book called “Happy No Snakes Day,” which focuses on teaching children to speak the truth even when faced with bullying.
Gaines, a Christian, competitive swimmer, speaker, and podcast host, is well known for her defense of women’s sports, which began after she tied in a competition in fourth place with “transgender” swimmer Lia Thomas. Now, she’s encouraging children to value the same things through her new book.
Brave Books is an organization that seeks to increase access to books with pro-country, pro-family, and pro-God messages to families.
According to The Washington Times, the story “centers on an island where a village of squirrels is celebrating ‘No Snakes Day,’ a day in which the local snakes promise not to eat them.”
“The question for the heroes is, should they flee the island to protect themselves, or warn the squirrels that the snakes are being less than truthful?” The Washington Times continued.
Gaines told The Washington Times that the “snakes” are evident in today’s culture.
“There are hungry serpents among us. They are no longer wolves disguised in sheep’s clothing. They are openly and outwardly preying on those who are most vulnerable: our children,” she said. “Those serpents are telling children lies that put them in dangerous situations and compromise their own ability to think and speak the truth.”
