Jumping, running, skipping, and hopping all come naturally to most children, and in this joyful, simple text, Barbara Juster Esbensen celebrates the pleasures of jumping through the day--starting with the moment a child hops out of bed in the morning. A frog, a butterfly, raindrops, puddles, pillows, and chairs all provide new occasions for jumping as a little girl has breakfast, goes to school, and comes home to play. Maryann Cocca-Leffler uses rich, vibrant color in her illustrations and a glowing warmth of expression in her portrayal of a child and her mother as they share this exuberant day.
