      Rita, along with several of her friends, wants to try out for the swim team. After her trial swim, the coach tells her she is a Dolphin. Rita is elated until she learns that the rest of her friends are Sharks. Then the bad news really hits: the Sharks are the fast swimmers, the Dolphins, not so much. They don’t even have their meets on the same days. Rita and her friends realize that Rita’s inability to do a flip turn is want landed her in the Dolphins. Rita needs to decide: should she quit [...]

      Rita is elated to qualify for the Dolphins swim team until she realizes all her friends have qualified for the faster Sharks team. Doing flip turns would improve her swim times and move her up to the Sharks, but she fears getting water up her nose. What can she do to overcome her fear, and would it be worth it? A simple story for newly proficient readers but the humor and Rita's inner struggle give it weight.

      Swimming with Sharks is a fun story for elementary students. The easy reading and short chapters will help students trying to advance their reading level. Rita’s spunky personality and need for speed create a relatable story line any student can relate to. Every child has felt uncomfortable or left out at some point and this is the perfect book for children trying to fit in.

      A solid early chapter book for kids in late 2nd/early third who are ready for chapters. Nothing earth shaking here, but the appealing character, her dilemna (she can't swim on the team with her friends because her fear of doing flip turns, so she must swim on the lower level team), and the short length will make it appealing. I am considering adding this series to my collection.

      The book is about a girl named Rita who swims with her friends & becomes a dolphin. Then she quit. The picture gave the story away because it shows people swimming in the back ground. I liked this book because at the end Rita’s friends were persuading her to come swim again. I would recommend this to sports fans & people who like swimming!!!!

      J From the Gym Shorts series, this book is about a young femaile swimmer that must learn to do flipturns during swim races so she can advance from the dolphins to the sharks, where her friends are. Easy to read, and pleasant enough.

      Great series issuing sport contexts to deal with real issues that the characters face.

      There are not many sports books about swim teams and swim meets, especially early chapter books - for that reason I really appreciated this book.

      what i learned from this book was that u should never give up you should always keep trying.
