" From excitement to nervousness to straight-up fear to bravery, Jabari faces the diving board and surprises himself. Delightful, from the illustrations to the language to the "yes, my kid would say that, too" ending. " said.

" A great story about getting up the courage to jump. While the focus is on Jabari, I love the dad's presence in this story--loving and patient and supportive. Cornwall's illustrations capture the mood perfectly with subtle collage, blue tones, and unique perspectives. A stunning debut! " said.

" Jabari is MUCH braver than me! That high dive is really high. A sweet little story about a boy jumping off the high dive at his public pool. Great illustrations and simple text will make this a hit with storytime crowds or just reading together. Especially if you are fans of the swimming pool. " said.

" Courage is everything. This book teaches us about having the courage to take that first step. Love the illustrations, especially the picture of Jabari standing on the diving board looking down -- what a view and puts courage into perspective! " said.

" "It's okay to feel a little scared," said his dad. "Sometimes, if I feel a little scared, I take a deep breath and tell myself I am ready. And you know what? Sometimes it stops feeling scary and feels a little like a surprise."Jabari loved surprises.-----------:-) I mean... it's amazing. #bebrave " said.

" Did Ezra Jack Keats reincarnate as Gaia Cornwall? This book is summer's equivalent of The Snowy Day. Jabari Jumps has the same charm, incidental diversity, and sweet family interactions. Even the illustrations feel like a bow to Keats's style. Perfect for a summer storytime or parent-child storytime. " said.

" Have you ever had to do something that scares you? Jabari loves to swim, but when it comes to the high dive, he meets his match. Along with the watercolor and collage illustrations, I really loved that Jabari’s father gave him the right to be afraid, but also helped him re-frame the feeling as a “surprise.” And indeed, it helps the little boy make a splash! " said.

" GREAT book - for a kid trying to psych themselves up for any big "bravery" step, even if it's not the diving board. And what a great, supportive Dad - giving a couple opportunities to step back, offering advice... well done!Literally the only quibble I have with this book is Jabari holding his nose as he hits the water. I never let any of my swim lesson kids hold their noses! :-p " said.
