Finding Dory: Three Little Words

illus. by Grace Lee. 40p. Disney Pr. May 2016. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781484725856.
PreS-Gr 2—Appropriate for kids, as well as a potential gift book for all ages. The motivational message—just keep swimming—is written over beautiful watercolor images based on the film Finding Dory. This offering is evocative of the "Pete the Cat" series' positive mantras and also comparable to Barbara Kerley's The World Is Waiting for You, as both mention troubles one might experience in life, but pair them with encouragements for readers never to give up in spite of those difficulties.
VERDICT The sure-to-be-popular film and positive advice may increase demand for titles featuring the characters.
