“An interesting and fun addition to the “learning to swim” picture book set that is perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing.” – School Library Journal

Nate loves sharks. He reads shark books every day, watches sharks on TV, and talks about them nonstop. He even likes to pretend he’s a shark wherever he goes! However, there is one small problem. . . .

Nate can’t swim.

When his older brother points this out, Nate works hard to overcome his fears and learn how to blow bubbles, use a kickboard, and finally swim without help, as quickly and as gracefully as a shark. Will he be able to beat his brother in a swim tryout and get his bite back? Kids will love this jaw-some book complete with vibrant and whimsical art and a list of shark facts in the back!
