Swimming, swimming, in a swimming pool, when days are hot, when days are cold, in a swimming pool. Breast stroke, sidestroke, fancy diving too ! Oh don’t you wish you never had anything else to do ?
Contenu / Contents
Gary Clement brings us an illustrated version of the beloved classic song “Swimming, Swimming,” full of fun and humor. The illustrations show a young boy and his friends spending a carefree day at the neighborhood pool. We see them walk to the pool together, change into their trunks and then spend hours swimming, cavorting, splashing and diving. The pool is full of moms, dads, other kids and babies, all enjoying a chance to cool off on a hot summer day. The boy returns home, tired but happy, and falls asleep holding onto his goggles in anticipation of another.
This book is mostly a picture book and can be a good start to work on oral competences in your class.
