Who Can Jump?
Sebastien Braun. Candlewick, $6.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-7636-6753-5
Five animals (and one human child) demonstrate their jumping prowess in this question-and-answer style story featuring thickly painted illustrations by Braun. The question of the title repeats on each spread, and the animal it refers to appears opposite atop a flap; lifting it showcases each jump. An orange cat leaps out of its bed to playfully pursue a mouse, while a boy in a red hoodie finds a puddle to splash in on the final page. Braun gives readers both a stress-free animal guessing game and an invitation to show off their own jumping skills. Simultaneously available: Who Can Swim? Up to age 3. [em](Mar.) [/em]
