Jabari salta

By Gaia Cornwall
Illustrated by Gaia Cornwall

Working up the courage to take a big, important leap is hard, but Jabari is almost absolutely ready to make a giant splash. Now in a Spanish-language edition!

Definitivamente Jabari está listo para saltar del trampolín. Sus clases de natación ya habían terminado. Había pasado la prueba. Solo que . . . tal vez primero debería hacer algunos ejercicios de estiramiento. —Parece fácil, —dice Jabari mientras observa a los otros niños turnarse. Pero cuando su papá le aprieta la mano, Jabari se la aprieta a su papá. Gaia Cornwall debuta como autora e ilustradora de libros infantiles con un cuento que trata sobre lo que hay que hacer para desarrollar la valentía al dar un salto grande e importante. Jabari is definitely ready to jump off the diving board. He’s finished his swimming lessons and passed his swim 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. In a sweetly appealing tale of overcoming your fears, Gaia Cornwall captures a moment between a patient and encouraging father and a determined little boy you can’t help but root for.

  • A great book about taking the time you need to overcome your fears
  • Features a wonderfully compassionate father and his children
  • A fantastic debut by promising new author-illustrator, Gaia Cornwall, now available in Spanish
