The Bear that Couldn't, Shouldn't, Wouldn't Swim!

Samantha Marando

Otis couldn’t swim, in fact, he hated the water and he especially hated it when he couldn’t do something. After another day of watching his friends play in the water, he decided enough was enough. He was going to learn how to swim!

This heart warming story shows that with a little determination and positivity a lot can be achieved. With a little help from his friends, Otis turns his ‘couldn’t’ into a ‘could’, his ‘wouldn’t’ into a ‘would’ and his ‘shouldn’t’ into a ‘should’!
