Finding Dory in a Picture Book: Three Little Words by Amy Novesky

Title: Three Little Words
Author: Amy Novesky
Illustrator: Grace Lee

Whether you're just getting your fins wet or have already begun your journey, this story of hope and perseverance will inspire you to do as Dory would do: Just keep swimming.  Embark on a journey with the eternally optimistic blue tang as she crosses and ocean in search of her family.  Through both challenging and joyful times, Dory remembers the three little words that keep her striving toward her dream. 

The words of Dory have become part a part of our common vocabulary.  How many times have you heard someone say: Just keep swimming?! We all know that phrase.  This book uses Dory's words to remind us even in difficult times to just keep moving forward and not give up.  What ever the challenge may be you can get through it.  For me - knowing what Dory the character is like, the message came through loud and clear.  It's such a simple message but so important.  Couple this with sweet pastel illustrations and you have a beautiful book that kids will love! 

With the popularity of Finding Nemo and Finding Dory this is a book that young kids will love.
