"In Velasquez's milky oil paintings, a raven-haired brother, sister, and mother go swimming in a pool. Brigham's text is limited to two-word exclamatory phrases, one per spread: 'Jump in!/ Swim! Swim!/ Splish! Splash!' The intimate view of the family at play makes the churning, turquoise water appear as vast as an ocean, while the watchful mother's tender expressions assure protection and security. Ages 1 3.
