Author Biography

Award winning author, Roe De Pinto, dedicated her life to her children and grandchildren. She put aside her careers, which included realtor, administrator and writer, to prioritize keeping her family first at all times. Being raised of Italian descent, family always took precedence. Roe felt that the family priority should be carried on from generation to generation as she was taught and she sees it diminishing in the world we know today. So, Zealy and Whubba are her two messengers to all the children, trying to instill the traits of sharing and caring and love as well as protecting one another’s family and friends. She hopes her little ambassadors of good will, will spark our future generations to prioritize family and relationships once again!

Zealy's Very First Swim (Book 2) by Roe De Pinto is a heartwarming story about a little seal that learns how to swim with the help of her daddy. One day, Daddy and Zealy are playing near the water when Zealy asks Daddy if he can teach her how to swim. Daddy thinks that is a great idea and slides into the water, with Zealy close behind. Daddy is very impressed with how well Zealy is learning. As Daddy and Zealy swim around, they are joined by Zealy's whale friend, Whubba. Soon, Zealy is exploring the ocean with Whubba by her side. Join Zealy, Daddy, and Whubba as they laugh and play in the sea. Zealy's Very First Swim is a book about love and friendship that any young child would be sure to enjoy.

Zealy's Very First Swim (Book 2) by Roe De Pinto is a cute story with many gorgeously painted pictures. I loved the colorful illustrations and the story held a special message for its readers: "Love one another today and always." As a parent, I look for books that stimulate a child's imagination and teach our little readers an important lesson. This book met my criteria plus more! I was impressed with the illustrations and the story was enjoyable without being too long for a younger child that is just being introduced to reading by picture books. A beautifully written and illustrated book certain to entertain any young child. I would suggest this book for children ages 2-4.
