Jolly Time Books: Surf's Up (Paperback)
The importance of setting goals is one of the most powerful lessons we can teach our children. Lizzy Jolly thinks that it is important for everyone to have a goal-even her younger brother, Ben. Kelly, their cute dachshund, didn't want Lizzy bugging her about not having goals. So Kelly hopped out of the birdbath, where she had been cooling off, and wrote a poem about goals. Then she decided to sign up for swimming lessons. Kelly is shocked to learn that the only swim instructors are Fang, the ornery cat, or Tommy Turtle, the slow moving green rock. Oh, no This is horrendous What will Kelly do? Will she ever learn to swim? Jolly Time Books tell exciting stories with positive messages the whole family can enjoy. Jolly Time Books are full of individually hand-drawn vivid and colorful illustrations that will spark the imagination of any child.
