Jabari Tries

We rated this book:


Jabari Tries is a book is about STEM. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Jabari is a boy that wants to build a flying machine. He likes to think about himself being an engineer like other African-American scientists.

Jabari wanted to build a flying machine. He kept trying but it would not work and he did not want any help. His sister, Nika, kept saying “Me,” wanting to help. But he did not want her to. His dad told him to have his sister help. But it still did not work. His dad told him to take a deep breath and try again.

So Jabari and his sister tried again and it worked!!!

Jabari Tries teaches a great lesson on accepting help, even if you don’t want to. It’s good to try fixing a problem with help. At first, he didn’t want help, but then he needed it because when he tried, he didn’t get it right. But, that is okay! Because mistakes happen. It also teaches a lesson on taking breaks and trying again.

I liked the graphics. They have lots of details. They showed exactly what was happening in the story.

I really like this book. After reading it, I wanted to make an airplane myself! I would recommend this book to young kids three through seven years old. It is a fun book to read during storytime!
