Three Little Words by Amy Novesky @DisneyHymperion #DisneyPress #FindingDory


The much anticipated Finding Dory movie is making it’s debut so it’s the perfect time for the release of the book Three Little Words based on the character of Dory.

Dory was a favorite character of mine from the first movie so I was thrilled to see her get her own starring role! As is true in all Disney books, there are lessons to be gleaned from her story.

One of the catch phrases that stuck from her character is “just keep swimming.” This book explores the depth and meaning behind those three little words and their stronger more powerful message than just the literal words.

Life is hard and there will be trouble and we want to teach our kids to never give up and keep working to accomplish whatever they are striving for. They may not always know which direction to go, like Dory, but as long as they keep going and persevere, the reward will pay off in the end.

I love the parallels between Dory’s character who just kept swimming and the life lessons to be learned from her and her faith and hope that she never gave up on. For her it’s finding her family but we all have things we need to keep swimming towards.

The story is simply written for littles to understand with beautiful illustrations from Grace Lee that look just like the movie but with their own uniqueness. All three of my children adore this book and I’m thrilled to see such an inspirational story resonating with them.

Three Little Words is a wonderful message for kids to remember when they feel like giving up.
