Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Sue Whiting captures all the excitement of looking forward to experiencing something new, and all the trepidation ... Meredith Thomas's pictures are full of colour and movement ... This would be a great springboard book for pre-school children. * Bookseller+Publisher * ... This is a sweet, gentle story that explores the theme of fears and overcoming those fears. While it's a terrific choice for reluctant swimmers, it is also a great pick for young kids who are looking forward to their first summer on the beach. Special mention must be made of Thomas's superb illustrations ... she has captured the movement of water to perfection. * Babyology * A Swim in the Sea intimately and affectionately encapsulates a special time in a child's life. * Magpies Magazine *
