Review:

'Here is the ideal way to show your toddler what happens at the pool... A real understanding of the realities of family life is the highlight of these warm and reassuring books.' Parents in Touch 'Charming read... full of details that had me imagining mini stories about the other characters. The style of illustration is realistic, and the story is a great depiction of going swimming.' Nayu's Reading Corner Blog 'These books are absolutely lovely. They should do very well for the really young person who might be about to go and do one of these things.' Bookwitch
