With the help of photographs, she shows parents exactly what to do to teach their infant to be safe in the water in a fun and playful way. She begins with answers to the first questions parents ask: How frequent should the lessons be? How long? Will my baby forget? Will he be afraid? Among the subjects she covers are water temperature; introducing the infant to the water; getting him used to submersion; paddling under water; encouraging him to open his eyes under water; teaching him to dog-paddle on the surface of the water; and how to use poker chips! She also discusses breath control, floating, kicking, pulling, jumping, diving, games that can be played in the water, and pool techniques that can be adapted for use at lakes and beaches. The author's simple, proven methods, including the Ten Commandments of teaching little ones, will ease parents to that wonderful moment when they watch their child splash along with self-reliance, joy, and safety.

Swimming is a widely popular sport and activity with great health-related fitness benefits. Yet, a significant percentage of children are unable to swim with any degree of skill—meaning not only are they missing out on health benefits, but they also are at risk when in water. Part of that risk comes from receiving either no instruction or no differentiated instruction. Children receiving swimming lessons are commonly grouped by age or grade, and many lack the basic skills required for their age levels.

An infant can drown in as little as an inch of water in less than thirty seconds. A bathtub, toilet, bucket, swimming pool, hot tub, or any other container can be dangerous, and water safety should never be taken lightly. It's imperative never to leave a child unsupervised near water, and because child drowning is preventable with a long term commitment to swimming lessons, it's equally important to make sure your child can swim. The ability to swim is one of the best life skills you can give your child, and the sooner you do it, the safer your child will be. Statistics show that when water skills and comfort in the water are introduced early, children are less likely to develop a fear of swimming. Since a child's fear of water might prevent future attempts at learning the necessary water skills, it's important to start early and be safe. Mommy and Me Go to Swimming Lessons is a must-read guide book before starting swimming lessons with your child. Written through a child's eyes, it helps introduce parents and children to swimming lessons and encourages them to feel comfortable and excited about going. Your child will be asked to learn all of the water skills introduced in this book at their own swimming lessons. This is an easy, fun book that your child will want to read over and over again, even after they have started learning to swim. About the Author: Angela A. Kear is the mother of a daughter named Adriana. She wrote this story from her personal experiences with her daughter at swimming lessons. She believes there is a HUGH need for a book that helps prepare parents and children for swimming lessons and encourages them to feel at ease and energized about going. Mrs. Kear is the bestselling author of a wedding planning book titled, The Busy Brides Bible for Planning a Fabulous Wedding Without the Expensive Cost of a Wedding Planner.

Learning how to swim can be a frustrating experience sometimes, especially for an adult. Kick with your legs, pull with your arms, breathe in, and breathe out and do it all at the right time. Before you know it you’ve got a hundred and one things to think about and do all at the same time or in the right sequence. The Swimming Strokes Book is designed to break each stroke down into its component parts, those parts being body position, legs, arms, breathing and timing and coordination. An exercise or series of exercises are then assigned to that part along with relevant teaching points and technique tips, to help focus only on that stroke part. Although it is not the same as having a swimming teacher with you to correct you, this book perfectly compliments lessons or helps to enhance your practice time in the pool. The 82 exercises form reference sections for each swimming stroke, complete with technique tips, teaching points and common mistakes for each individual exercise. Clear, concise and easy-to-follow.
