Learning how to swim is a first for many elementary aged children. This book shows how easy and fun it can be to learn to swim. With the help of friends and supportive comments, Olvina learns to swim in the pool and the ocean! Swimming is something all children should learn, and this book could be a great way to introduce swimming.
A great book for a child who is hesitant about water, or just learning to swim. Simple, straight-forward and depicts that many people ( or animals) get nervous when they are trying something new.

Olvina, the very "chicken" chicken of "Olvina Flies" is back. Now she is conquering her fear of the water, which she does with the help of her penguin friend Hailey. Kids will cheer on Olvina, especially those who have had similar fears of their own!
I thought this book was funny. I liked it when she had her swimsuit on!
Very reassuring story about a chicken who learns to swim.
