Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr didn't know how to swim. So they took swimming lessons and practiced a lot. Soon they proudly showed their parents their new skills--and then they even won a swimming contest!

Format: Paperback
Snipp, Snapp and Snurr, the three Swedish boys, learn about safety and precaution in this fun tale.
The boys spend the summer at a coastal cottage while their father is on a business trip. The lure of the water is strong but after two mishaps, one very minor but the other potentially serious, the boys are taught to swim so that they will be safe around the water. They even enter a swimming race after their father returns.
One thing I really liked about this story is that it did not try to have the boys learn to swim in a single lessor or day. Instead it talks about all the various lessons (treading water, back float, dog paddle, etc.). This is good for children who might otherwise get discouraged if they don't seem to learn as quickly as storybook characters.
Each pair of pages has the story on one side and a painted illustration by the author on the other. Check out the other Snipp, Snapp, Snurr books (and the Flicka, Ricka, Dicka books).

The first page in this book was a stern warning about the lack of proper flotation device usage in this older story, but I found the storyline to be one that encouraged safety around water. In addition, the neighbor boy is kind to the younger Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr. My boys loved reading this story, and I found it easy to discuss with them water safety and the benefits of learning to swim.

I remember loving these books from my own childhood, and our grandchildren are enthralled with the ones I've purchased now. I'm glad they're still available!

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book with others to prepare and get my boys excited for swim lessons. I never read it to them due to the lengthy text. It seems more suitable for 8 years and up in my opinion.
