London Learns: Swinging For Joy


Wishes Do Come True!

Swinging for Joy is a heartwarming story that inspires readers to care for others, be hopeful, and in so doing, find joy.

After enjoying swinging in the park, London and her gifted dog Joy encounter a young boy who’s lost a family treasure. After the boy shares his wish, Joy springs into action to grant it. An act of kindness becomes the bond of friendship.


I loved this story! It's filled with kindness, happiness and the joy of friendship. The beautifully colourful illustrations add to the magic of this lovely book. Joy is an exceptional dog and the best 'furriend' anyone could wish for. With her gift and London's kind heart, the two make a perfect pair. I can see London and Joy sharing many adventures together, and there being many more books in the London Learns series for children to enjoy. Thank you, Aishah!
