The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is an absolutely delightful story set among a family of otters that will bring confidence to the most unconfident toddler as we join Scramble, a little otter who learns to swim. Beautiful illustrations complement the simple text brilliantly.

Synopsis

Little By Little by Amber Stewart

Scramble is a little otter who can't swim. At the beginning of the story, we find him in the middle of writing a list. It's his Can-do and Can't-do List.

It means he's teased by some of the riverbank animals. It means he feels left out when everyone else is in the water. And it means he spends hours and hours sitting on his own on the slippery rock wishing and wishing and wishing that he could.

'You've got to start small And so, slowly, slowly, Scramble builds his confidence in the water - overcoming each new incremental goal that he sets himself. Until, finally, Scramble really can swim! At the heart of this gentle story about learning a new skill is the message of encouragement - something that is important for toddlers everywhere.
