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!

From the Back Cover

Snipp, Snapp and Snurr were three little boys who lived in Sweden. They had blue eyes and yellow hair, and they looked very much alike.One summer, the boys went to the seashore with their nanny. Although they didn't know how to swim, Snipp and Snapp decided to go 'sailing' in Nanny's washtub. Luckily, Snurr ran and got help from their friend Nick. One thing was certain after that--it was time for the boys to learn to swim!It took many lessons and a lot of practice, but in time Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr 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).

These books are truly wonderful reading for young children. In our family, the young ones sit quietly and enjoy what each page brings. There's always a "moral" to be learned, and an adventure along the way. They bring the reader and the child into another time and place, which is fascinating.

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.
