You Can Do It, Bert | Ole Konnecke
Sometimes, you just have to make the leap. This book begins with Bert, a tiny orange bird, nervously standing at the end of a branch. He is trying to muster up the courage to jump. After a few unsuccessful attempts, a little encouragement from friends, and a flash of determination, Bert jumps! You might assume, because he is a bird, Bert flew off into the sky. No flying here! Bert took a huge leap into the air which resulted in an unexpected splash. Bert and his friends are enjoying a dip in the water.
Now that summer is almost upon us, many of our CHP kids will be enjoying all kinds of water play. I think all of our tentative pool jumpers would benefit from this book. Bert made the leap and boy ... it was fun!
