Synopsis: This is the third book in this series. From the author of Adventures at Walnut Grove: A Lesson about Teasing and I DOUBLE Dare you comes a story about believing in yourself.

Sammy enjoys visiting new places. So he decides to go to a forest called Whispering Willows with his friends. Along the way, they go visit Paradise Pond. As they go through the pond, Sammy realizes that with practice and confidence he can finally swim. Magical things happen in Whispering Willows if you believe in yourself. What a wonderful message for kids.

Overall Thoughts: There is no phrase that is more important for kids to understand than I can do it! Kids today are so filled with negativity. Dana's story shows the importance of believing in yourself. Dana's story shows that if kids don't have confidence in themselves, they become invisible. What a great lesson for kids to learn from the earliest age.
