Product description


“This gently humorous, ‘building up the courage to embrace your fear’ book is sure to resonate with both children and adults alike: most of us have been there with Jabari’s dad, either as parent or teacher, as a child takes that plunge into the unknown: the idea of treating it as a ‘surprise’ is superb and will definitely ensure that wherever this is shared, it will create a pretty big SPLASH!.” ― Red Reading Hub

A tender portrait of a parent gently guiding their child to process intertwined feelings of apprehension and excitement. The gentle text makes effective use of rhythm and repetition, while the soft mixed media illustrations play with perspective, enabling the reader to empathise with Jabari’s shifting emotions. ― Children's Books Ireland - Mind Yourself

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, great for 3+
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 September 2019
I added this book to my 2 year old daughters wishlist a while back and finally purchased it for her 3rd birthday present. It has not disappointed. She loves the book and asks for it again and again. I also love it and have not tired of reading it on repeat.

She understands Jabari is scared, and that he does it anyway rather than letting fear stop him do something he really wants to do. She joins in with the celebration at the end "he did it!! He can do it!" And says "I can do it"l!!!" herself now when she believes she can't do something but surprises herself.

The message is quit subtle, not overdone, but has worked a treat improving my 3 year olds way of thinking. The story is about overcoming fears but also how to support and be kind to help others. I like that the dad and little sister are there supporting, not pushing him in just a lovely way, and are there to cheer him on.

Helps with teaching my daughter difference between not wanting to do something because she actually doesn't want to, as opposed to be scared or worried she'll fail/be no good at all ie. if you knew for sure you would succeed in doing something you're hesitant on, would you do it? If yes, you want to do it and it's just fear stopping you, if not, it's just something you don't want to do.

I see this being a popular book for years to come. Illustrations are beautiful and really expressive. Great use of perspective to make us feel part of his jump and achievements! Highly Recommend for wide age group.
