Fun swimming facts abound in this didactic tale that teaches kids that hard work, doing one's best, and good sportsmanship are their own rewards Go! Go! Sports Girl products are designed as a fun and educational way to promote self-appreciation and the benefits of daily exercise, smart eating and sleeping habits, self-esteem, and overall healthy life skills for girls. The books and dolls in the series encourage all children to dream big and work hard to achieve their goals-and have fun while doing so. Swimming is Suzi's passion, and she longs to be as accomplished a swimmer as her big sister Hanna, whose ribbons colorfully decorate her bedpost. Finally Suzi's hard work pays off and she's called up for the meet. But is she ready to race against her older sister? This heartwarming story, a 640 Lexile book, reveals what happens at the swim meet and provides a number of fun facts about swimming. The Go! Go! Sports Girls app is available on iTunes.
