One summer, Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr went to the seashore with their nanny. Although they didn’t know how to swim, they decided to go “sailing” in Nanny’s washtub. Luckily, Snurr ran and got help from their friend Nick. One thing was certain after that–it was time for the boys to learn to swim! It took many lessons and a lot of practice, but in time Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr proudly showed their parents their new skills–and then they even entered a swimming contest!
