Jumper by Rebecca Scarberry
JUMPER 5* Review:
I most definitely agree with Jumper when he first introduced himself. “Hi, I’m Jumper! I am a red beach ball, the funniest and bounciest beach ball you’ll have the pleasure of owning!” My kids couldn’t agree more.
I read Jumper’s story to my kids before going to bed. They really love it when I read them bedtime stories. Their faces lit up and their eyes danced with joy. When I read this red beach ball’s adventures, they seemed to bounce off their feet. They were excited every time Mr. Wind helped Jumper go far far away from the toy store.
Jumper is a red beach ball who had one simple wish: to go to Carnival Castle and be able to try all the rides there. Only problem was, he was inside a toy store, along with other balls. One day, he was able to go out of the store, with the help of Mr. Wind; his adventures outside the store began. Little did he know that there were a lot of obstacles that would prevent him from fulfilling his dreams.
This short story about a red beach ball is a fun book to read. The illustrations were fantastic, my kids enjoyed seeing the pictures and they’re clamoring for more. The dialog was simple enough for kids to understand. There was never a dull moment, and my boys have actually requested for this story over and over again. I highly recommend Jumper to anyone with children, age four and up and to those “young at heart”.

Join in the fun as Jumper tells about his adventures. He’s a red beach
ball, trying to escape from a toy store so that he can find a swimming
pool and Carnival Castle. Children love beach balls and they’ll love
them even more after reading about Jumper. To be read to age four. Age
eight should be able to read this exciting story, so many children love.
My nine-year-old daughter loved this story! It was engaging and caught and held her attention throughout the entire ride. She says she wants more books/stories by this author. You can’t get a better review than that! 🙂 Definitely deserves five stars. A side note: my daughter is a rather picky reader. I have encouraged her to read A LOT, and she does not give 5 stars easily! Well done, Rebecca! Two thumbs up! 🙂
