for Jumping Day by Barbara Juster Esbensen and Maryann Cocca-Leffler
Never has a child been so happy on a rainy day as the energetic young girl in this story who greets the world with buoyant enthusiasm from the time she jumps out of bed in the morning until she jumps back into bed at night. Esbensen’s lively rhyming text follows this hoppy-go-lucky character through the day, which includes a gleeful walk to and from school, providing her many opportunities to hop and jump. The illustrations show the protagonist to be an Asian-American girl who shares the house with her mom and her equally exuberant cat. (Ages 3-6)
