After being stuck inside a box all his life, Jack breaks free on his thousandth jump. But he sees himself as a broken toy and destined for the trash bin. Until Barker the dog comes to the rescue and shows Jack all the different ways to jump. Imagine Jack’s surprise when he learns how to jump rope, bungee jump, jump out of cake, and many more big jumps. Life outside the box is a lot more fun. Dweck’s story in verse in combination with Allen’s vibrant cartoon illustrations set the scene for each high-flying adventure. The end pages contain fun facts about nature’s biggest jumpers plus activities that carry on the jump theme. Jump! shows kids the joys of trying new things.
