Mop Rides the Waves of Courage


The third in the Mop Rides series! Surfer Mop is back, this time with a case of the jitters that his dad and friends help him tackle

Mop, his friends, and his dad are back, except this time, Mop is dealing with a case of the jitters. He’s nervous to talk in class, and waves that he would usually have no problem riding are feeling too big.

Luckily, Mop’s dad shows him how to work with his fear. He takes a step back, feels his feelings in his body, and lets the fear pass through without judging it—it’s not bad, just different! Before too long, he’s back out on his board, and presenting in class again.

Celebrated San Francisco surfer-journalist-dad Jaimal Yogis teaches 4-8 year-olds timeless beach wisdom with the continuing story of Mop, a sensitive and fun-loving kid who just wants to be in the ocean.

With stylish full-color beachy illustrations from cover to cover by SoCal surfer Matt Allen.
