Sam and Jump Paperback – 1 January 2017
With its simple sentences (set in a typeface that has an understated poignancy), roundheaded characters, and softly colored watercolor-and-ink renderings, Mann s (I Will Never Get a Star on Mrs. Benson s Blackboard) story raises some powerful and provocative questions about loyalty, responsibility, and friendship...both adults and kids should find this ostensibly unassuming story offers significant food for thought.
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Sweet, endearingly simple illustrations created with pencil, watercolor, and "digital magic" judiciously use white space to focus attention on inseparable Sam and Jump sharing tea, soaping up in the tub, and sitting side-by-side on a tree branch and in an overstuffed chair...Kids with their own favorite toys will identify with this gentle, tender tale of Sam and Jump's special bond.
The pastel-hued watercolor, pencil, and digital illustrations are absorbing and encapsulate both the summery feel of the beach and Sam s range of emotions. This familiar and cheerfully told saga will resonate with many tots.
An endearing story about friendship...Young children will enjoy and empathize with Sam and his love for Jump. A great one-on-one read at bedtime.
School Library Journal
This charming tale reassures tots who've loved and lost a stuffed pal by showing them how special friends, both new and old, can be.

I'm often looking for appropriate and yet interesting books to read to my 2-3 year olds that will still be interesting for the older 4 and 5 year olds in my preschool class. This picture book fits the bill perfectly. I find it to be a relatable story that all children can enjoy. It holds their interest all the way through to a satisfying ending.
