Jabari Jumps

by Gaia Cornwall - £7.99  Walker Books Ltd (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781406380873 | ISBN 10: 1406380873

Working up the courage to take a big, important leap is hard, but Jabari is almost absolutely ready to make a giant splash.
 
In a sweet tale of overcoming your fears, debut author-illustrator Gaia Cornwall captures a moment at the swimming pool between a patient and encouraging father and a determined little boy you can’t help but root for.
 
Jabari is definitely ready to jump off the diving board. He’s finished his swimming lessons and passed his swimming test, and he’s a great jumper, so he’s not scared at all. “Looks easy,” says Jabari, watching the other kids take their turns. But when his dad squeezes his hand, Jabari squeezes back. He needs to figure out what kind of special jump to do anyway, and he should probably do some stretches before climbing up onto the diving board...
