Sophia has a BIG problem. She’s AFRAID of water. What’s even worse is she’s a SWAN. Everyone knows all swans love water.
Her good friend Ollie Owl has an idea. Sophia can overcome her fear of water by setting a goal. Taking several small steps toward that goal will help her achieve it.
Wanting to play in the lake with her friends and swim like the other swans, Sophia agrees. As the steps become more difficult, Sophia has to gather more and more courage to accomplish each one.
Can Sophia achieve each step and overcome her fear of water even though sometimes her heart pounds and her legs get wobbly?
