Tanner the Turtle lives on the banks of the bayou surrounded by animal friends who love to play at the water’s edge. Everyone knows, though, that water can be dangerous if you don’t know how to swim. And Tanner is too scared to learn! When his mother brings him to the local swimming pool for lessons, he refuses to even stick his head under the water. With the guidance of Coach Ted, though, Tanner is soon splashing with his new friends and learning valuable lessons in water safety. By Christopher DiBenedetto, illustrated by Rebeca Triana
