Swimming LessonsNumber 1 Sun Street

Helena Bross, illustrated by Kadri Ilves

“Number 1 Sun Street” is a series of very easy-to-read books. They are warm, charming stories for those who are just starting to learn to read, with a limited amount of text, short sentences and simple words.

The whole class is having swimming lessons. Omar and Axel practise and practise. Axel thinks it’s cool, but Omar doesn’t. His legs just keep on sinking, and sometimes his head sinks as well! Omar gets fed up and wants to go home. But Axel wants to be with Omar, of course. What’s he going to do now?

This is the fifth free-standing part of the Number 1 Sun Street series about the two friends Omar and Axel who live in the same building at Number 1 Sun Street. See also: New Friends, The Hundred Kronor Note, What will the Teacher say? and The Police are Coming!. The books are part of the “Extra Easy to Read” series.
