DescriptionWorking 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 est listo para saltar del trampol n. Sus clases de nataci n ya hab an terminado. Hab a pasado la prueba. Solo que . . . tal vez primero deber a hacer algunos ejercicios de estiramiento.
--Parece f cil, --dice Jabari mientras observa a los otros ni os turnarse. Pero cuando su pap le aprieta la mano, Jabari se la aprieta a su pap . Gaia Cornwall debuta como autora e ilustradora de libros infantiles con un cuento que trata sobre lo que hay que hacer para desarrollar la valent a 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.
