" Brilliant. Beautifully paced and illustrated, this story features a child of color just being a child facing a typical, jumping off the diving board for the first time. I am in awe of the gentle control and powerful storytelling here. " said.

" I loved this book! It is a simple, charming story about a little boy named Jabari who goes to the pool with his father and sister and really wants to jump off the high dive but is also really nervous and scared. Step by step, little by little, he learns how to conquer his fear and accomplish his goal. Fantastic story for helping children understand it is OK to be nervous or scared about doing new things but how to find the courage to face your fears and succeed! Loved it! " said.

" Really captures the child's point of view and addresses a typical childhood fear in a delightful way. " said.

" A day in the pool becomes a test of courage for Jabari. He wants to leap off the diving board but realizes he should let the kids in front of him go first, he hasn't stretched, and so on. If its something he really wants to do, will he be brave enough to do so? " said.

" This is a beautiful story about having the courage to do new things. The story challenges expectations that men shouldn’t be afraid - the father tells his son it’s okay to be scared. " said.

" Having spent many years around swimming pools and diving boards, I can say she's got this fear and the joy of overcoming fear down pat. Love the visual POV when he's at the top of the board. And I love his dad, who gives just the right kind of encouragement. " said.

" Love it!! Beautifully illustrated, great messages (trying something new can be scary and that’s okay), and diverse characters make this a must for #classroombookaday! Excited to share it with my students! " said.

" This story is about a little boy having the confidence to jump off of the diving board. This book shows that dads can look after the kids all day - there is no reference of mum. Dad also tells Jabari that it is ok to be scared - challenging masculine roles. " said.
