    My Favorite Children's Book

    Swimmy is a truly wonderful book. I still, specifically, remember this book being read to me 30+ years ago and I now give it as a gift to anyone who has a baby. It has lovely illustrations, but what I love best about the book is the positive messages: Not to take council of your fears, the strength of collective action and that it is ok, great even, to be different.

    charming book on thinking skills and working together

    I think this book gives a super lesson on how important it is to think for yourself and how to work together for a very imoprtant life lesson. Thinking skills do not always come easy to some children, and in a whimscal way, the auther really uses these skills as a survival tool when everyone cooperates together.
    My granddaughters loved this story. I used it as storytime for our tea party. I needed a story with a sea theme and a life lesson. This was the perfect one. Truely a book your child would want to read over and over again.

    The difference is in the mentality, not the color!

    This is a great book for teaching children that just because someone, or an animal, looks different that they or it is worthy of ridicule. They're not! Just like the rabbit in vol.1 of Skog Forest.
