George and the man with the yellow hat head to the local pool for some fun on a warm summer day. George quickly becomes educated by the lifeguard about all the pool rules—no running, no splashing, no food, etc. George also becomes acquainted with a new friend, Lucy, who has recently learned to swim and is nervous to give it a go. George tries to make her feel more at ease by getting her an ice cream treat. When George’s ice cream falls in the pool, Lucy bravely dives down to retrieve it, and discovers her abilities as a swimmer. George and Lucy both enjoy their ice cream and their new friendship.
