Kiss the Book

Cover: Jump!

Jump! By Tatsuhide Matsuoka—ADVISABLE

Jump! by Tatsuhide Matsuoka. BOARD BOOK. Gecko Press, 2019. $13. 9781776572311


This book features a variety of animals jumping. It opens horizontally and the reader is presented with an animal such as a frog, a kitten, a fish, a dog, a chicken, a rabbit, and more. When the reader turns the page they see that animal jumping, with a variety of presentations of the word “Boing”. There are simple illustrations of each animal and a variety for the lettering of the word boing.

My 1-year-old adored this book and fell over laughing. She has never laughed like this at a book before. I read it out loud to her and she enjoyed seeing each creature jump and hearing the word boing acted out different ways. I had to keep tracking it down to complete this review, as she carried it off! I think this could be used by a preschool teacher as a fun opener for a lesson about jumping or creatures that jump.
