Editorial Reviews

Review

This tender and accessible story of bravery and patience when facing a new situation encompasses a wide range of emotions for timid children of all shapes and colors.
—Kirkus Reviews

While showing children they can overcome their fear of water and learn to swim, this quiet picture book realistically depicts how slow their progress will be, yet how rewarding.
—Booklist

Yum’s watercolor and colored pencil illustrations perfectly capture a young child’s expressions, conveying reluctance and nervousness as much through body position as through the text. The instructor and classmates are portrayed as a diverse group inclusive of ethnicity and body type. An empowering story of gradually overcoming fear that will resonate with young children. A great purchase for most collections.
—School Library Journal

Yum’s watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations show children with a variety of skin tones and features...There’s no preaching or reproach or trick here, just adults modeling the patience needed to give an anxious child time and space to try something new.
—The Horn Book

The illustrations depict ethnically and racially diverse characters and capture through body language the pains and joys of overcoming the fear of water.
—World Magazine

Yum pays so much respect to the interior lives of children in this story that young readers and listeners will surely relate, even if they’ve never once taken a swimming lesson.
—Kirkus Reviews (blog)

Yum captures the power of empathic patience to turn apprehension into accomplishment.
—Shelf Awareness for Readers

This is a sweet story many families will relate to, illustrated with summery watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations and a cast of many colors.
—Palo Alto Weekly
