Dive into a funny story about conquering your fears with a little help from loved ones.
Nelly has a brand new swimsuit, and she loves it. She looks fabulous, so she wears it all the time– while riding her bike, eating at a fancy restaurant, playing basketball . . . . She even wears it to bed.
But there’s one place Nelly won’t take her lovely new suit: swimming. No way! She will not get in the water. But Grandma, a swimming champion, has other ideas. And with Grandma’s loving help, Nelly gives it a try– dipping one toe in at a time, blowing bubbles, and learning to float.
Soon Nelly is on the way to becoming a champion swimmer herself!
