Let's Go Swimming!

By Caryl Hart
Illustrated by Lauren Tobia

Bee pulls her shoes and socks off, Billy builds a heap of clothes. They wriggle into SWIMSUITS… Ready? Steady? GO!

Join Billy and Bee in the fourth instalment of this "First Experiences" series set in the urban city centre. Today let's go ...SWIMMING! The two friends wriggle into their swimsuits quickly, because there's so much fun to be had – jumping, splashing, kicking, playing pirates and, finally, floating on their backs like giggly, squiggly starfish! Gorgeously illustrated, this is a bouncy celebration of a first pool experience, perfect for reading with a toddler learning, or about to learn, how to swim.

  • Very toddler friendly format: the titles have rounded corners, card stock, and a strong series "look" which centres around warm pastel colours.
  • This series is part of Walker's contribution to the #weneeddiversebooks campaign, aiming to reflect both diversity in society and modern family dynamics.
  • Look out for Let's Go to Nursery!, Let's Go to the Farm! and Let's Go to the Seaside!
