The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for Children’s Book Award 2016, Books for Younger Children category Everyone knows that elephants can’t jump – it’s something to do with their knees. The little elephant in this book is desperate to jump like his friends and not being able to makes him feel very small on the inside. Then something happens that makes him a hero and, though he keeps his feet firmly on the ground, his heart jumps for joy! From the creators of Who's in the Loo? this is a typically funny story with a lovely message about individuality. Adrian Reynold’s bouncy watercolour illustrations are full of warmth and you can always rely on Jeanne Willis to make the reader laugh. Lovely! ~ Andrea Reece
Ready, Steady, Jump! by Jeanne Willis
A glorious and funny celebration of individuality from the bestselling creators of Who's in the Loo?
When the other baby animals laugh at Elephant for not being able to jump, he sets out to prove them wrong. But hard as he tries, he just can't jump. Then he realises that he is able to do something that no other animal can - his strong, long trunk can make him a hero.
