David Jumps In

We rated this book:


It’s the first day of school for David, and he doesn’t know anybody. David has no friends at his new school. It’s recess time, and he wants somebody to play with. He watches a lot of kids playing games. Some kids are playing hide and seek. Some are playing on the monkey bars. Other kids are blowing dandelions on the grass. David wants to play elastic skip. Will David be able to find friends to play with? This story is about friendship and children playing. I think it’s funny that I know how to play the same game as David, but I call it Chinese jump rope instead. I also think it’s funny that they show the kids playing video games during recess, and they don’t look up; they are sucked in. I like the illustrations, and how the illustrator used watercolor—it is very pretty. When I look at the pictures, I remember me playing the same games as the kids in the story. I recommend this book to kids who love to play with friends.
