It’s hard to say whether this might convince fearful children that the water is their friend, but its sly attitude is definitely amusing.

Synopsis

A hilarious picture book about a little girl who is afraid of the water, but ultimately makes friends with it—and learns to swim

Heather was a little girl who always fell in the water. She didn't mean to do it. She didn't enjoy it. But she fell in the water nearly every day, and so her parents made her wear water wings all the time. Young readers, especially reluctant swimmers, will love finding out how Heather overcomes her fear in this warm and funny story.
