General Note:
Translated by Karen Li.
Summary, etc.:
Abigail dreads swimming lessons. Every time she dives into the pool, she makes a big splash, and all the girls in her class shout: “Abigail's a whale!” Abigail can see that she is larger than the other girls. She feels huge, heavy, and out of place.Abigail's swimming teacher takes her aside and points out: we can change how we see ourselves. He offers a creative visualization technique she can use to feel bolder, more confident, and more accepting of herself.
