Is your child ready to dive into swimming? Here are children’s books about swimming, perfect whether your child is excited or scared to swim.
Swimming has been a hit or miss with my kids. We can go from one week of splashing and making bubbles in the pool to outright fear of dipping their toes in the water. My eldest has been more willing to splash around and play, but still hesitates letting go of the sides of the pool.
How do you ease kids into the idea of swimming? Besides swimming whenever I get the chance, reading books is a way to introduce a new experience.
Kids learn they’re not alone in their fears. They can follow along as a character goes from hesitant to confident. And they realize that swimming can be a fun experience.
Below are six children’s books about swimming that show just that.
