Jubari Jumps

This picture book is such a delight, and it brings back so many memories of my youth.  Young Jabari is finished with his swimming lessons and is excited about becoming a "great jumper".  But as his turn to jump from the high diving board gets closer and closer, he begins to feel more and more...hesitant.  I love how Jabari's dad reassures him and helps him face his fear. SPLASH!  If only I had a book like this to read before I took my first jump from a high diving board.  Gaia Cornwall has done a nice job with this story and the illustrations.  Young swimmers will enjoy it.
