In this whimsical tale of the importance of responsibility and maturity, four young gymnasts attend their weekly gymnastics class with their instructor, Coach Wendy. When they meet Sammy, a visitor to their class, the kids instantly adore him. It doesn't take long for them, however, to see how silly he is! But what Sammy doesn't realize is that in order to have a fun and safe experience in the gym, it's imperative to listen to your coach and not to treat the gymnastics equipment like a playground. Will Silly Sammy ever learn what these smart children already know about being a good gymnast?
