Get Set! Swim!

A young Puerto Rican girl learns an important lesson about pride and victory from her mother.

"A good choice that nicely fills the void of picture books about girls involved in team sports." -- School Library Journal

"The well-executed artwork is strong in both design and color, and conveys both the trepidation and excitement that Jessenia feels as she approaches and participates in the meet." -- Booklist

"A winning story of competition, perseverance, and pride in accomplishment. Jessenia's swim team is slated for its first away meet and she's nervous. Accompanying the girls on the bus, Jessenia's mother reminisces about her homeland of Puerto Rico, its brilliant blue skies, the expansiveness of the ocean. During her first competition, Jessenia loses concentration when she recalls her mother's comments and does not win first place. However, with her coach's encouragement and her mother's support, she finds the strength to win her last race." -- School Library Journal
