As you read this book you will learn:
Surf lifesavers wear red and yellow
Always swim between the red and yellow flags
Some beaches are safer than others
There are different kinds of waves, some are safer than others
If you need help in the water, stay calm and raise your hand
Never swim alone!
Annie and her family are going to the beach for a holiday. Two surf lifesavers visit Annie’s school and she learns how to stay safe at the beach. Annie discovers that the ocean is changeable. She is initially wary of the waves but after meeting the surf lifesavers, and with the help of her family, Annie soon discovers the joys of swimming at the beach. Annie’s confidence grows until she experiences a surging wave that drags her into the deeper water. Will she remember how to tell the surf lifesavers she needs help?
