Sergio Makes a Splash by Edel Rodriguez

Sergio is a little penguin from Argentina who loves soccer, fishies, and water...well, at least shallow water. He doesn't know how to swim, which makes him very nervous when a class trip to the ocean occurs on his first day of school. Will he take the plunge and face his fears?

Sergio Makes a Splash
is a wonderful book that talks about facing one's fears using a really fun and humorous approach. The bright, catchy, two toned retro illustrations are cute and entertaining and are the perfect complement to the great personality of this story. Readers will cheer Sergio on as he battles and triumphs over his fears. This is a great story, especially for little ones afraid of swimming.
