Ruffy is a lonely little dog who lives by the seaside and sustains himself with scraps from the rubbish bins along the beach car parks.

One morning when he decides to beat the heat and take a dip in the ocean, he hears a voice across the water calling for help. He barks as much as he can to try and get people to see the little boy in trouble but nobody takes any notice. The crashing waves are too loud and everyone is playing games and laughing!

Find out what happens next! Will Ruffy end up alone again by the rubbish bins, or will he get a new home and a warm kennel?

Join Ruffy to find out about learning to swim.

With four children under five, living on a small farm near Melbourne, the author respected the need for their careful education and sensible discipline and told them stories, based on farm and wild animals, that would impart to them life lessons for their paths ahead!

With the passage of time, some twenty-five plus years, these stories have now been put down in writing and published for children everywhere who will face similar challenges and choices in their own lives that the author’s children successfully met in theirs.

    With two kids and living near the water, I set out to find a book that was more than a bedtime story. Ruffy tells the story of water safely and the importance of learning how to swim. I'll be visiting this Author's work for years to come!

    There is no doubt that every young child needs to learn to swim as soon as they can. The character of Ruffy and lesson in the book underline this fact. I was able able to get my 5 years old involved in the story and then ready for lessons.
    Highly recommend the book and am looking forward to sharing the other books in the series with my child.

    This life lessons for kids book is about learning to swim.
    A lonely dog who lives by the sea decides to take a swim in the ocean to cool off on a hot day.
    He hears a cry for help and starts barking to get some attention when no-one hears him it's up to him to save the boy.
    The illustrations go well with the story.
    I just struggled with dog having to sleep outside in the kennel in the end. That is just a personal preference though.
