About the Book

Shroobear's First Swim is the story of a tiny shroobear who learns valuable life lessons through interactions with her friend Frederick the froggyshroo. Shroobear is a fictional character based upon a lovable black labrador puppy that the Author once owned. In this story, Shroobear discovers that everyone learns to do new things in his/her own time. She also learns that the ability to forgive is a wonderful attribute that fosters friendships. This book is particularly well suited for parents who love to read to their 3 to 5 year old children and is also an excellent book for young children who are transitioning  into reading on their own. Please enjoy this book with your children and keep an eye out for new titles in the series of Shroobear Short Stories.

About the Author

Daniel Linseman is a Professor of Biology at the University of Denver who enjoys writing children's books in his spare time.  He is a proud father of two daughters, Hope and Payton, who are ages 4 and 1, respectively. The Author developed a love of black labrador retrievers as a little boy whose best friend was his dad's black lab, Sal. As a young man, the Author acquired his own black lab pup and new best friend, Ashes, who was the original Shroobear and the inspiration for Shroobear's First Swim. After a wonderful 14 years together, Ashes passed on and the Author wrote this book in memory of their time together as best friends. The Author now has another black lab pup named Sophie who is constantly "auditioning" for a part in an upcoming addition to the series of Shroobear Short Stories. The Author hopes that children and parents alike who love dogs, labs in particular, and Shroobears most of all, will thoroughly enjoy this book.
