Holly’s Day at the Pool: Walt Disney Animation Studios Artist Showcase
Holly the hippo is brave until her dad asks her to go to the pool. Filling her mind with “what-ifs,” Holly’s imagination runs wild with every possibility of what could go wrong. From being cold to getting water in her nose, what if she sinks, or what if a snapping turtle pinches her? Even with Dad’s helpful advice, Holly is still scared until the moment she needs to be brave for her little sister and jumps. Does Holly get water in her nose? Does she sink? Does a snapping turtle pinch her? Open the book and find out how being brave can make you the best sister of all.
From Walt Disney Animation Studio’s Artist Showcase comes the delightfully charming Holly’s Day At The Pool. In this engaging tale of confronting fears, feeling brave, and even facing snapping turtles, little ones can giggle, laugh, and cheer Holly to get in the pool. Benson Shum engages young readers to jump right into the story while highlighting a common fear, leaving little ones with a new confidence to kick, stroke, swim, and not forget the cannonball splash on their way right into the pool.
