Available in Afrikaans, English

Annie’s mum wants her to learn how to swim; she buys her a new swimming costume. But Annie doesn’t like water – it’s wet and splashy and deep …

Until Miss Klara, the swimming teacher, pairs Annie with Lisa, who swims just like a sea otter!

From a review by Jay Heale “… though just as frightening for some children, is water. Deep water. No problem if you have a copy of Annie Learns to Swim written & illustrated by Katrin Coetzer. What a sensible publication! A simple, engaging story incorporating a child’s nervousness at swimming and showing basic instruction in action. But this isn’t a “teach yourself” book – it’s a story about Annie and her doubts and fears, and her growing friendship with Lisa, a better swimmer. The author’s pictures are uncomplicated, set out with plenty of space, and generally cheersome. This one is also in Afrikaans: Annie Leer Swem.”

KATRIN COETZER is an illustrator based in Cape Town, South Africa. She works editorially for various international publications and has extended her visual art practice to include four exhibitions of her paintings and drawings in Europe last year.
