Summertime (and Arizona) are for swimming!
I have a reluctant swimmer (if that's a thing) & the other sibling LOVES getting wet & going swimming. So, I thought checking out some books about swimming would help the reluctant one & here's some cute books I found along the way. I also added a few mermaid books, for those of you with children who live in the water. Hope you enjoy them!

Swim spas are an interesting combination of a mini-pool and a hot tub in one exciting package. Spending an evening after a hard day's work in a swim spa can have relaxing effects on a person's body and mind. Swim spa treatments like hydrotherapy are helpful in easing pressure, alleviating pain and maintaining cardiovascular fitness.
