Rex the warthog wants Oslo the oxpecker bird to swim with him, but Oslo has so many reasons why he shouldn't. It's too cold, wet, and scary creatures could be hiding right under the surface, like sharks and crocodiles. Rex is persistent though because Oslo is being unreasonable. Finally, Oslo caves and the two have a blast with a surprisingly funny ending.

OSLO LEARNS TO SWIM is a level one ready to read book for children aged four and up full of water fun. The illustrations are simple so children can focus on the words and the word choices are easy for early readers to sound out. This story is full of humor and friendship as Rex convinces Oslo to swim. It's cute seeing a bird and warthog swimming together and makes me think of Lion King.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to early readers aged four and up who love reading about animals and friendship. My daughter enjoyed this book and I love watching her expand her vocabulary.
