Children's Literature - Catherine Campbell Wright
This simple tale of a little girl and her father captures their special relationship as they spend an afternoon at the swimming pool. Young readers will be able to identify with this charmingly detailed account of a parent-child adventure. Children can follow each step from the time father and daughter pack their bag to take to the pool to the moment she dives into the water by herself. This familiar childhood experience is brought to life by Marisabina Russo's colorful and loving illustrations.
School Library Journal
PreSA reassuring story of a young girl and her father's weekly outing to an indoor pool. With coaxing, the child learns to float, kick, blow bubbles under water, and jump into the pool from the edge"my kind of dive," she says. Youngsters who are afraid of the water will be encouraged by the story's gentle approach, and all will relate to the joy of a special time of sharing between parent and child. Russo's joyful, realistic gouache paintings enhance the warm and loving tone of the text.Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
