Tina Lost in a Crowd—Book Tour by Miriam Hurdle

I am so excited to welcome my friend and fellow educator, Miriam Hurdle, to my blog today to tell us about her new book, Tina Lost in a Crowd.  She is a former teacher, administrator, writer, poet, and lover of children and books.  Take it away, Miriam!

Hi Pete, I feel at home to be on a follow teacher’s educational blog. Thank you so much for hosting my Book Release Tour and allowing me to share my process from pen to publication with your readers.

The Making of Tina Lost in a Crowd, Part 2

The Story Behind the Story Tina Lost in a Crowd

The story of Tina Lost in a Crowd is partly based on fact. When my daughter Mercy was eight years old, my sister Yolanda, her husband Patrick, and their son Enoch, who was Mercy’s age, came from Hong Kong to visit us. We took them on tours in northern and southern California. One activity was going to a concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. I drove the five of us to Rowland Heights Regional Park, then we took the Park & Ride bus to the Hollywood Bowl. 

The sky was dark with bright stars when the concert started. Mercy and Enoch swayed side to side when they listened to Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and smiled at each other. During the intermission, Patrick left his seat to buy some popcorn. Mercy and Enoch wanted to use the restroom. Yolanda and I urged them to catch up with Patrick. 

Later, when Patrick came back without them, I panicked. Imagine losing 8-year-old kids in a crowd of 18,000 people. How would I find them? Yolanda and Patrick stayed in their seats while 

I followed the descending steps between the sections of seats to where I thought they could had gone. 

What happened next became one of my most favorite memories. This story is based on this unforgettable moment.

Blurb

Tina invited her friend Erica to attend a popular Tchaikovsky’s Spectacular concert on a summer evening with her parents. During the intermission, her dad left the seat to buy some snacks. Tina and Erica followed him wanting to use the restroom. The shoving crowd pushed them away, and they lost sight of him. It would be impossible to fight through the 18,000 people to find him or go back to Tina’s mom. What would the girls do? 

This story tells about what happened to Tina and Erica after they got lost. Children can adapt to the learning from different situations they may observe or encounter. Adults could have discussions with the children about the situations to help them develop problem-solving skills.

My Book Review

Tina Lost in a Crowd is a fun and helpful picture book that shows children what to do if they get separated from their parents or supervisors at any large public gathering. Instead of panicking when Tina and her friend get separated from Tina’s parents at an outdoor concert, the girls keep their heads and remember what to do. They stay in one place until help arrives. Based on a real life-experience, Miriam Hurdle’s story teaches a valuable lesson to kids in a non-threatening and sensitive manner. I would recommend Hurdle’s book as an educational tool for parents as a valuable resource before taking their children and their friends on an outing to the zoo, sporting event, mall, or other public places where there are likely to be lots of people.

      1. yes, i understand, those feelings are never forgotten. what happened with my grandson was i was shopping for school clothes for him and my granddaughter. at some point, he got bored in the clothing area and wandered off to the toy area after seeing them across the aisle. when we turned around he was gone and we couldn’t find him anywhere. we quickly had that scary and fearful feeling take over. after about 15 frantic minutes looking for him, we headed to the customer service area in front when we heard on the intercom: “j-dog is looking for peaches, j-dog is looking for peaches!” (he had used his funny family nickname, his real name is jackson, and my grandma name of peaches). we were soon reunited and all cried and hugged and he said, ‘i went to the helpers like you told me to do if anything ever happened and i used those names because i knew you would know it was me and not some other kid.”

      I still remember getting separated from my mom in a supermarket when I was little. It was truly a frightening experience. To add to my fear, each time I looked down the aisle, the same guy looked at me from the other side of the aisle. It felt creepy, though he was probably just looking for donuts or something.🤣

    3. Wow, Beth, your 15 minutes were like forever falling into frightening chaos! What a brilliant idea to use nicknames to find each other. This is a wonderful story to share on your blog. We’ve watched two movies last year, one losing the son and the other losing a daughter when the kids were about four. They were not found. The one about losing a daughter told the story of the couple continued to search and posted age progression on the media for 25+ years. One woman was a perpetual imposter and looked very much like the image. She went to the couple and spent days with them. Eventually, she didn’t have the heart to pretend. There are so many missing children! It’s sad and scary.

      Miriam’s story brought back a memory of a time when I took a field trip with another teacher’s class to the zoo. One of the kids (2nd grade) in the other teacher’s class got separated from her small group. It was absolutely a scary moment to get on the bus and realize a child was missing. We found her in the petting zoo, totally oblivious that her classmates weren’t around.

  9. Congrats on your new release, Miriam! I once lost my little brother (twelve years younger) in a box store when we were in the big city- picture small town kids here. Mom was searching for some new clothes for us kids and asked me to watch my then five-year-old brother. I got bored and started reading book jackets on a nearby shelf 🙂 but when I turned around Michael was gone!
    I did a fast search, couldn’t find him, and gathered my courage to tell Mom. She hurried to customer service and they did an announcement over the intercom- I was scared and mortified.
    Thank goodness he was found a short time later, hiding under a clothing rack!
    I learned my lesson that day; kids can disappear in an instant, so pay attention, lol

      Those kinds of experiences always stay with us, Jacquie. Sometimes we need to have a close call to fully get our attention.
      Your comment about where your brother hid reminded me of one of those shows I saw recently where people do outrageous things because they were dared by their friends. One of them was about a guy hiding in a clothes rack. When a customer pushed the clothes looking for the right item, this guy’s face popped out between the clothing. Quite naturally, the customers freaked.

Little ones move so fast. When I watched Autumn and took her to the park, I didn’t let my eye off of her. So many situations could go wrong when we are distracted. I was scared more than once or twice. We learned, do our best, and hope things go well for our kids.

      I suspect that many parents have had this discussion, though I know some probably haven’t thought about it. It’s a balance between wanting to keep our kids safe without getting so crazy about it that we make them more frightened. I used to teach a health and safety unit at school and had the kids draw fire escape routes for each person in their family, including a family meeting place. There were years where none of the students had ever held this discussion with their parents. I read a tragic story about a dad who got out of the house in a fire and then went back into the home looking for his kids and died. The sad part was that his kids were already out of the house, and he didn’t know it because they didn’t have an agreed-upon meeting spot.

      3. I agree completely. I simply held my son’s hand when I didn’t want him wandering too far.

    2. I’m thankful for the happy ending, Yvette. When I go out with my grandkids, I don’t take my eyes off of them 🙂

      There are universal problems that any parent can identify with. The fear of losing your child is one of them. I suppose grandparents have it just as bad.

      1. I misplaced my grandson on a playground for about five seconds. I’ll never forget that panic! 😀

    2. Thank you for making all the stops, Diana. Pete had a teacher’s hat on when he wrote the review, haha! 🙂

  24. Hi Pete, I enjoy Miriam’s beautiful, interesting and fun blog. I look forward to reading “Tina Lost in a Crowd.” My heart is stopping reading the background about this book. Unfortunately, most parents can relate to having lost their child even for seconds. Thank you for sharing a great review, Pete. I was not aware how this is also an educational tool.

      I’m happy to see anyone fulfill a dream. Miriam has taken what could have been an awful situation and turned it into something positive. I feel the same way about my students. Seeing them happy and doing something positive for the world reinforces the importance of education.
