Kinda short, kinda sweet, a story about a young boy who hasn't caught onto how to move his body to swim in the family pool. The rest of the family can swim quiet well, and from the illustrations readers feel the boy's embarrassment, and sadness. A small frog jumps into the pool, and the boy's calmness saves it. Then the boy is able to swim by mimicking the strong kicks of the frog. The illustrations are old school, giving the book a slightly dated feel, but the picture of the frog are fun, and t...
Little Joe is afraid to swim, though his mom and siblings take to the water like fish. When a frog ends up in their pool, Little Joe quietly observes and takes to the water... like a frog!
Very very simple story and illustrations.
This is a story about a young boy who does not know how to swim. He is out at the pool with his entire family (who all swim very well) and he is feeling left out. Then, a small frog comes into the pool and the whole family tries to catch him. Little Joe (the boy who cannot swim) watches the frog closely and observes how the frog is swimming. He then later on sets the frog free from the pool and starts to swim on his own- just like the frog.
I get that some people need some encouraging words when learning how to swim. this book is not one of them. this is an awful book and I'm not entirely sure how it got published in the first place. and when i was reading the primary thought was not for little joe but when was this book going to end. DO NOT READ.
A lovely little story about being observant of nature.
Milestone: learning to swim
A hit at storytime today. We frog kicked afterward.
A sweet little story of overcoming fear and being aware of those around us who may be in need.
This story of a boy who overcomes his fears of water to help a frog in need is extremely attractive. For another story like it, try The Deep by Tim Wenton.
Very cute book! It's about a little boy who cant swim; but quickly befriends Frog ...and learns how to swim. I would use this book to help students who are struggling with low self esteem.
