Enjoy a live book reading session of “Jabari Jumps” by Gaia Cornwall. 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.
Specialists from SEL Dallas will read aloud and facilitate social and emotional learning questions for learners during and following the book.
Readings will take place at 9am and 1pm via a secure Zoom link, which will be shared in your confirmation email.
You can purchase your own copy of the book from online book sellers or access digital copies from your local library.
