I remember loving swim lessons, but my sister hated them! Here’s a story about a little girl who is more like my sister:
Every Saturday Lottie goes to swim lessons, but she has a problem: There’s a shark hiding in the swimming pool waiting to eat her! She’s not getting into that pool. But when a special Saturday is approaching—one with a pool party—Walter the walrus appears. He & Lottie become fast friends and he helps Lottie to find her courage. The illustrations in this book are oh, so sweet—soft, watercolors that are perfect for a pool-setting, and subtly expressive characters. This story is heart-warming and relatable, whether or not you’ve ever feared swim lessons. Everyone has had to face a fear, and Lottie does just that, with help from her imagination and a friend. I fell in love with Lottie & Walter, and I think you will too!
