Summary 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. Abigails swimming teacher takes her aside and points out: we can change how we see ourselves.
