Any Child Can Swim by Jeanelle Ankeney

Stars: ***1/2

Subtitle: A joyful method of teaching swimming to preschoolers – from infancy on.

This book is being counted towards the Non-Fiction Five challenge.

I picked this book up because my daughter was in swimming lessons and having a hard time and I wanted some pointers. The book is actually for parents to teach their own and/or other people’s children.

It’s laid out in order of the steps you should take and is accompanied by lots of black and white pictures which illustrate how to do some of the steps. The book is pretty old, written in 1979 (no offense intended to any 28-29 year olds out there) but it doesn’t seem to make much difference in a book about swimming like it might in some other books, (like about technology or health.)
