Jabari Tries by Gaia Cornwall; illustrated by Gaia Cornwall. 2020. Published by Candlewick Press.
Brief summary: Jabari decides he is going to make a flying machine all by himself without the help from his younger sister, Nika, or his dad. After failing to have it fly across the yard, he stops and tries to figure out what went wrong and how to fix the problem. After awhile, he decides to let his little sister assistant him. After one too many failures, he becomes frustrated and wants to give up. His father encourages him to keep trying. Nika squeezes his hand to let him know she supports him too. Will he succeed with his perseverance?
Comments: I loved the first Jabari Jumps and this one has the same “can do” attitude. This is a superb book to share with young readers right before they decide to make something or when they are failing.
