When you can’t swim, the swimming pool can seem like a huge scary place. And when Lollipop is confronted with the local pool, she just wants to sneak away home. But thank goodness Grandpa is with her. This picture book can help you see that you can do anything with the right encouragement. Grandpa offers reassuring words, a hand to hold and a fantastic imagination, which all help Lollipop take those first steps and breaths and kicks in the water. It’s hard to take your eyes off the smashing, splashy illustrations. Eagle-eyed readers will enjoy looking at all the swimmers in the ENORMOUS pool, and spotting the giant octopus, the big blue whale and the pirates before Lollipop and Grandpa meet them face-toface. This beautiful book is sure to make even the most reluctant swimmer look at swimming pools in a whole new way. - Emma Andrew, Teacher
