Saturday Is Swimming Day

author/illustrator: Hyewon Yum

Swimming lessons are on Saturdays, and every Saturday one little girl has a stomachache. When she gets to the pool itís loud, the floor is wet and slippery, and her swim cap is too tight. Her swimming instructor, Mary, says itís OK to sit by the edge if she doesnít want to get in the water this week. The next Saturday the girl has a stomachache again, but with Maryís gentle encouragement, she eventually manages to make it into the pool to practice her kicks. Little by little, the girlís confidence grows ó until one Saturday comes around when she has no stomachache at all! In a charming and relatable story about trying something new, author-illustrator Hyewon Yum shows that sometimes a little bravery and a lot of patience are all you need to face your fear.

New things can be scary ó but as one endearing little girl discovers, itís perfectly fine to take your time.
