Jabari Jumps by Meg Medina and Illustrated by Gaia Cornwall

Featured Book

Jabari is ready to jump off the diving board. He’s finished his swimming lessons. He’s passed his swim test. It’s just – maybe he should do some stretches first. “Looks easy,” says Jabari, watching the other kids take their turns. But when his dad squeezes his hand, Jabari squeezes back. This book shows kids that some of the best moments in life happen when we face and overcome our fears.
