Drawing on his own memories of the best days of summer in the city, Gary Clement brings us an illustrated version of the beloved classic song “Swimming, Swimming,” full of fun and humor.

The illustrations show a young boy and his friends spending a carefree day at the neighborhood pool. We see them walk to the pool together, change into their trunks and then spend hours swimming, cavorting, splashing and diving. The pool is full of moms, dads, other kids and babies, all enjoying a chance to cool off on a hot summer day. The boy returns home, tired but happy, and falls asleep holding onto his goggles in anticipation of another delightful day at the pool.

Watch this video to learn the melody and hand gestures for the song!
