We absolutely adore Because, the new kid friendly book by Mo Willems in stores now. Mo Willems is a number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator of many of our favorite books, including The Pigeon series. Because is a powerful symphony of chance, discovery, persistence, and magic in a moving tale of a young girl’s journey to center stage. Illustrator Amber Ren brings Willems’ music to life, conducting a stunning picture-book debut.


Because shows us how the smallest moments in our lives can make a huge impact. The discussion of how something little can often lead to a chain reaction got us thinking about our own inspiring “because moment.”

My daughter immediately thought of how she was initially scared of swimming, but because her big brother joined the swim team she was inspired to learn how to swim. She bravely participated in lessons and quickly became a little fish last summer. This summer she will be trying out for the swim team!


I love that we’ll be a swim team family! Because my son watched the 2016 Summer Olympics, he was inspired to join the swim team. It’s inspiring to see the chain reaction unfold. We will forever be grateful of this sport that has brought a newfound self-confidence to our kids, all because of one moment watching the Olympics.

To prep for the summer swim session, we’re crafting up push up pop “push yourself” swim team gifts to hand out at meets. Swim team moms and dads, you can grab the free printable below to create your own.


Grab the free swim team gift printable HERE. Simply print out the printable on white card stock paper, trim the cards along the bolded lines. Punch two small holes near the center of the card and attach a push up pop to the card using twine. Gift to your favorite swimmer before a swim meet along with a copy of Because by Mo Willems, because it’s an inspiring tale for any child (or adult) working toward a goal! You never know where the book might take them.
