Jabari is inventing a machine that will fly all the way across the yard! But making it take off will take grit, patience--and maybe even a little help from his sister. Hacer una máquina voladora puede ser frustrante, pero una socia y un poco de paciencia es justo lo que podría hacer que el invento de Jabari despegue. Jabari is making a flying machine in his own backyard! "It'll be easy. I don't need any help," he declares. But when his invention doesn't work, he gets frustrated. Good thing Dad is there for a pep talk, and his little sister, Nika, is around to assist and inspire, fairy wings and all. With the endearing father-child dynamic of Jabari Jumps and engaging mixed-media illustrations, Gaia Cornwall's tale shows that through perseverance and flexibility, an inventive thought can become a brilliant reality. Now available as a Spanish paperback edition.
Gaia Cornwall is an illustrator who loves making patterns for surface design. Her work can be seen in magazines, in logos, on various products, and even in movies. Jabari Jumps is her first picture book. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island.
