Annie Learns to Swim

By Katrin Coetzer (Bumble Books)

Swimming season can be a splashing joy for some children and a nightmare of swimming lessons and the scary deep end for others.  When Annie’s mom buys her a new swimming costume Annie doesn’t want to swim – the water is wet and splashy and deep.  Then Miss Klara pairs her with Lisa – who swims just like a little sea otter.  Will Lisa inspire her or intimidate her?  A charming story about learning to swim, making friends and pushing your boundaries. Also available in Afrikaans.

Coetzer is a favourite illustrator of ours – check out her international portfolio here and follow her blogspot here.  She has illustrated two other books, A Wish This Big (Tafelberg) and Train to Kalk Bay (Lapa).
