To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My 2yo took an immediate liking to the book after one round of reading. The story is engaging. The art is easy to follow (has great focal points) and quite realistic - there are many details that the child can continue to observe. The book is bring read independently and is one of the first choices now even after 3 weeks.
I loved this book about Jabari (who also stars in the book "Jabari Jumps")! It is about a boy who wants to invent something that can fly across his yard. He tries to do it without any help but discovers that he can't do it alone - that having some support makes the job successful. His father is encouraging but not interfering. His cute little sister helps him figure it out and shares in his success. The illustrations are fun to look at and lead so some great discussions. My little one loved the excitement of inventing something and making it work. He also has a little sister and appreciated how Jabari's sister Nika in the story was so like his own.
Jabari Tries is all about determination, problem-solving, patience, perseverance, and teamwork. I love that it features a character who doesn’t get it right on the first try. Instead, Jabari experiences a variety of feelings as he learns to work through a challenge. It has a wonderful message for kids about how to handle situations that don’t go as planned. I think your kids are going to love this one!
Loveeee this book. I have a little builder/engineer on my hands who also happens to be an older brother. In the story Jabari attempts to build something and continues to fail. Dad suggests including his baby sister as his partner, and together the two of them are able to successfully make the plane fly. Other things to note, Jabari became frustrated in the story, dad stepped in and gave him a calm down technique and that really was the icing on the cake for me. This book is not only a great story but it has life lessons in it as well. I love it!!
We loved Jabari Jumps, so of course got this book...and I love this one even more!!! The dynamic of Jabari with his dad & sister are just so cute. And I love the expressions of frustrations, and how his dad helps him through. My son now often takes "tiny rests"
My son (3yrs) just adores this book! He loves listening to how Jabari gets frustrated and his little sister’s interaction with him. I enjoy how his father’s response is very understanding of the frustration emotion and validating his son’s feelings then gently steering him to a more positive way of dealing with just a big emotion as frustration & anger.
Ordered for my grandson and have not had the pleasure to read to him, however, my daughter checked out same character different book library and loves it. They are very particular about content and illustrations, so far I'm batting 1000 with the books I have chosen to order.
As an early childhood teacher, I often utilize books to introduce and reinforce concepts for the students. The Jabbari Books are some of my new favorites; this author strikes the perfect balance of addressing complicated feelings for children in a simple yet effective way! I purchased this specifically for a student with a very low frustration threshold, and he referred back to the story when working through an issue. Sometimes books make an impact that discussion cannot!
Gave this book to my grandkids, niece and nephews. Loved the story line and the fact that Jabari is my late son's name. I also have a niece named 'Nika, so it was like a family story. Jabari and my 'Nika got into all kinds of things. Yea!!!
Love Gaia Cornwall! The Jabari books are amazing. We had Jabari Jumps first and as soon as I saw this book was released, we got this one too. Amazing lessons and great ways to talk about hard feelings with little ones! 10/10!
