Sergio Makes a Splash

by Cindy H | Aug 10, 2017
Sergio is a penguin. Sergio's favorite things in the world are soccer, fishies, and water. He especially loves water of all kinds! Water can make him happy, relaxed, playful, and silly. Even though he loves water, Sergio can also be scared of it because he doesn't know how to swim. On his first day of school, his class takes a field trip to the ocean where they are going to learn how to swim. Sergio is nervous because the ocean is so big, deep, and dark. He watches his friends dive in, having a great time. He decides to jump in! Even though he doesn't get into the water very gracefully, he finds that it is a ton of fun and he can't wait to go back. Maybe next time he'll even be able to get in without his floaties!

This is a cute story that is great for encouraging reluctant swimmers. Sergio is an adorable little penguin, and you get to learn some fun facts about him, such as where he lives, and how he is different from many other types of birds. This picture book is recommended for children ages 4-8.

Sergio Makes a Splash, written and illustrated by Edel Rodriguez, is available in print at the library, click the picture of the book's cover to place on hold! If you like this book, check out another book about Sergio, Sergio Saves the Game.
