Zonderkidz Barnabas Goes Swimming - eBook

It's a beautiful day and Barnabas Bear and Russell Raccoon want to go swimming. But their friends in Brookdale Wood are busy. Peter Pig is playing in the mud. Prickly Paul is taking a nap. Regardless, Barnabas can always find a reason to thank God for a fine summer day!

Part of the I Can Read! series, this book is a great tool for beginning and developing readers. My First I Can Read! books have basic language, word repetition, and whimsical illustrations that are idea for sharing with an emergent reader. Recommended for ages 4 to 7.

Barnabas Goes Swimming, written and illustrated by Royden Lepp, is an easy-to-read book about friendship. Barnabas Bear and Russell Raccoon want to go swimming, but they don’t want to go by themselves. They ask their friends, Peter Pig and Prickly Paul, to go with them, but their friends are too busy to join them.
When they get to the water, they find Gary Gator sitting on the bank looking very sad. He can’t swim by himself because it’s not safe. So, Barnabas and Russell ask Gary to join him. The three swim together happily for a while before Peter and Paul ask if they can join in the fun, too. When they do, Barnabas prays, “Dear God, thank you for summer days and good friends.”
The cartoon-like illustrations, done in light, muted colors, are very kid-friendly.
This Bible verse is given as a reference for the story: “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” [Psalm 118:24]
What I Like: The easy-to-read style has short sentences and lots of repetition, making it ideal for new readers.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
Overall Rating: Excellent.
