Come travel the world with Divot & Swish as they meet new friends and learn superpowers through playing sports! The summer sun is shining bright as Divot & Swish adventure in Costa Rica!
Their new friend Sammy the Surfer takes the duo to the beach to teach them how to surf for the first time. Nervous and afraid, Divot & Swish follow Sammy’s lead, trying to paddle, balance and stand on their surf boards.
Will Divot & Swish find the superpower of courage it takes to have an incredible adventure surfing with the fish?
What a cute story! Divot & Swish learn to overcome their fears and go surfing. I like that you can apply this to everyday situations. The story is told through beautiful rhymes that flow flawlessly. Teaching our children how to overcome their fears through a gorgeous picture book is something they can relate to. It was also really pretty awesome too watch the steps you need to take to learn how to surf. Having never been to the ocean before I’ve never even seen a surf board up close so I enjoyed that aspect as well. I’m excited to see what Divot & Swish are up to next!
